    No more public school? Shouldn't they be out now? Or is that mainly for the summer school students.

    I was wondering the same thing brianhos. Do they normally go late? I know it was a rough winter but DSM didn't seem to have that many cancellations.

    I assume that is for summer school.

    My wife's company, well the downtown location, has done everything to prep for evacuation. They may or may not be working downtown tomorrow. Sounds like it's likely they won't be.

    Water is supposed to go over the levee here in Cedar Falls. There's rumors that the levee is going to break. Downtown is already closed... this could get ugly.

    I'm guessing its summer school stuff. The press release didn't say.

    I think summer school started this week. However, administration and the clerical workers are in the buildings all summer as well.

    I am supposed to close on my house in Waterloo on Thursday. They had to move the closing to a different location because the offices are flooded.

    :fingers crossed: that it won't be as bad as what they are talking about. I work just south of downtown and it could be real interesting getting to work tomorrow.
