Recent flooding has displaced some local residents, and the Red Cross is helping out. With their work here and more importantly in Texas, it's worth noting that the Red Cross is broke, and now would be a good time to donate. And to follow the local chapter's Twitter.
In other flooding news, the Farnsworth House is underwater again, and no one can figure out what to do about it.
