You're probably familiar with the movie Water World starring Kevin Costner? Well, over the months that you've been reading me I'm sure you've noticed that I refer to the Water Wars that Ole and I have fought in the past and will be fighting again in four to six weeks.
A week or so ago a reporter from one of the local television stations knocked on our door and wanted to interview us regarding the upcoming flood situation. He's been a reporter in our area for many years and has done stories on the Buffalo River previously. He's watched our property over the years and knew we would be having issues this spring.
Here's the link to that interview.
Following that interview being broadcast a reporter from our local newspaper called and asked me to start writing a blog regarding our situation that would be linked to the cyberspace edition of the paper. After a bit of coercion I finally agreed. I just wasn't sure I wanted to "put all that out there" if you know what I mean. But I finally agreed and made my first entry a day or two ago.
Now the whole thing is I don't think - no - I know I won't have time to keep up two blogs so I've opted to put Tales from Frostbite Falls on hold during the interim and just write for the newspaper.
If you're interested in the story about how Ole and I have developed webbed feet and how we have survived in our own Water World over the last 35 years, you're welcome to come and read and comment here:
Well, I'm off to make another entry - hope to see you all over in Water World!!
