“ The next day my dad came and we all piled in the car and drove to my grandparents farm in South Dakota. We stayed with my grandparents and went to school in the small town of Leola. We left on May 29. I found out that the flood waters never even entered our home. We were all thankful for that. The town was damaged to the tiniest detail.
