Weirdest summer for rain. It is seriously dry now. In early June people were making comparisons between this year and 1993 when the Cedar River hit the 100 year flood mark here in town. In 2008 the flood went beyond the 500 year flood zone and they have since redrawn all the flood zones for the area.
The Wapsipinicon was flooding in mid June and that one caused our county fair to be cancelled. Same river flooded in 2008 and took out the bandstand and track during the Jones county fair two counties east of here.
