    Please explain: In 2008 the eastern Iowa floods were exasperated with the snow melt from Minnesota and now Minnesota had record high snow levels on frozen ground, why didn’t eastern Iowa have floods again with all the rainfall we have had so far this year? I call BS on your explanation, even a 7th grader can debunk your explanation.
