  1. Great news Cal, your neighbor to the East suffered three feet of water in their basement.

    I stopped over for a minute last evening and said I would stop over this morning to see if I could help.

    Sounds like the best help I could provide them the phone # for Rubicon.

    I’ll do that now.

    This blog is great service to the community!

  2. Funny thing when I went to the house to provide them the contact info. for Team Rubicon, a man with a Team Rubicon emerges from the flooded basement!

    The homeowner is a Team Rubicon volunteer who was helping in Wisconsin when his own house flooded.

    Now is the time for all good folks to come to the aid of their neighbor. God bless!
