May 31, 2008 – Ames Under Water

I found out that the small floods in Marshall County were magnified in Story County.  This morning I drove to Ames and was surprised at the flooding there.  These photos are from along Hwy 30 on the south side of town.  Last night Hwy 30 was closed due to flooding and one lane of I-35 was closed as well.  South Duff in Ames was closed and the Target parking lot was under water as well.

No tickets for illegal parking today!

I’m trying to imagine a new sport that combines boats or jet skis and soccer nets.

Here’s one of many reasons why it’s not a good idea to wade or play in floodwaters!
