Water, water everywhere...

...and not a drop to drink.

Ironic as it might seem, our old stomping grounds of Cedar Rapids is running out of water in the midst of a 500 year flood. Seriously. According to the most recent reports I have, there's at most a two day supply left for people to drink, shower, wash clothes, and use the toilet. Residents are now being told to use water for drinking and nothing else. How that is possible simply baffles.

At least one of my closest friends from our Iowa days has a house under water. As you hear more on the flooding, please pray for safety and protection. Pray too that God will abundantly supply all the needs of those displaced.
