Quote of The Week: Flooding Edition

The national media are finally giving the Missouri River flooding a bit of attention.  The New York Times does a brief paragraph.  The Los Angeles Times gives a longer treatment with a wonderfully succinct summation of the situation.
The rising river flowing through the Dakotas has strained infrastructure designed to protect communities in the Missouri River basin, said Michael Fowle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Aberdeen, S.D.
"It's the perfect storm, but in the worst sense," Fowle said. "It's filling things to the brim here."
