Is he still floating? 

Fuck that whole thing is a mess.  I want a house on the water, but seeing shit like that makes you think twice.  I grew up on an island, near Lake Erie, so water is something I enjoy.  Right now, I'm all fucked up living here in AL, there's the Chatahooche river, but that cess pool is nasty and filthy.

So after a long battle of flood fighting, we are still High and dry. We have been having a small leak under our planters through the soil. But our electric pumps have been able to keep up. Our wall is hold strong and will not be going anywhere. We are only worried about seapage now. The city diked our house and both houses next to us in. That really fucked us. We built 2 wing dikes on the side of our house, so we are now fully ringed. Our neighbor to the north of us lost his house last night.









Oh yeah, my walls not gonna break 8)

That looks like the last fucking place on earth I would want to live.  Cold as fuck, snow, rain, floods.  Is there anything good about where you live or do you just enjoy living there because it sucks so much?

fuck that is a lot of water. 4feet deep at the wall you built?
oh and great video, i love the sound of walking on snow.
the planter are 3 ft tall, and the water is up 7 ft from the ground at our dike, so technically its 7 ft up our wall.

Look up best places to live. I think Fargo/Moorhead was in the top 15 last year. No Crime, NO EMISSIONS TESTING!, Everything we need but not nearly the traffic of a big city. Shit man, I love it here.

I used to live about 3 houses down from the Niagara River, living upstream of the falls, waterlevel couldnt change but 3-4 feet max hi to low, Lake Erie was a different story depending on how the wind blew, it could change 7 feet sometimes
