Letter: Just how historic will the flood be?

Another historic flood on its way, we have been told. The city of Fargo started making 1 million sandbags for the city and Cass County on April 3. Will a flood reach 38 feet or more? Who knows? I do know the Red is quite low and the ground was very dry last fall, with deep cracks everywhere. Has how much of the snowmelt will go into the ground been factored in?

With the river so low and the ground so dry, I look forward to seeing how accurate the predictions are this year.
