That makes the little varmints happy
With the Platte in flood stage and all the sandbagging near the river the back waters have proved a great breeding ground for mosquitos. We are high enough so that flooding shouldn't be a problem we certainly get the benefit of all the little winged pests. The buffalo gnats haven't arrived yet but won't that be nice with both them and the mosquitos wanting lunch at the same time.
Flooding. The South Platte rises in the rockies in Colorado, the North Platte rises in the rockies in Wyoming and both have had over 150% of the usual snowfall and the two Plattes meet at North Platte NE. Flooding there is bad with many roads closed and homes flooded and we are just down stream and the flooding is getting serious here and points east. When the really warm weather hits the high rockies we are going to get more than our share of water..City sewage plant is being sandbagged by national guard helicopters and it should be O.K.
