I have been a bad blogger-over a month! I need to put up an account of my trip (my 14th, I think) to MediaWest Con at the end of may, but right now Iowa City and Coralville are in imminent danger of flooding.
In 1993 we had our "100 year flood" and it looks like this may be worse. the pictures above are of the Coralville Dam--built by the Core of Engineers to "control" water flow down the Iowa River. It is expected that the water will go over the spillway (picture on the right) sometime today.
