Well, not yet anyway, but soon. The government recently upgraded our flood condition to, well, whatever word they use for "biblical."

There is a 50/50 chance of the river cresting at 40 feet. Which would be a few inches higher than the 1997 epic flood.

So, anyway, I took out renters insurance a couple days ago. Just in case. I've always thought it was pretty much a scam anyway, especially since it doesn't cover floods.

Since I'm on the 2nd floor and not in the flood plain, I guess its not much concern. but, it is nice knowing I'm protected in case of fire or other emergency. (wow, this sounds like a Life Alert commercial)

Most of what wrecked Grand Forks in 1997 was fires because of the flood. But, Fargo wasn't hit as bad as GF anyway.

Well, whatever. River is supposed to crest next Saturday. maybe I'll pick up some groceries and a dingy, just in case.
