It's hard to believe that July is almost over and in less than a month school will be starting again. This summer has also been quite different from what we were all expecting. I remember the first evacuation when we went and helped some of our friends move their stuff out of their basements to higher levels. Then coming back to our house and anxiously watching the news to see if Minot was going to flood. Thankfully the river did not go over the dike and everyone was allowed back into their homes to carry on with their lives just as they had before, or not.
