All this wet weather has emergency leaders starting to worry about what's in store next spring. Rivers are full and flooding. Most counties in our viewing area are waiting until mid-winter to prepare for a 2012 flood. They say it's too early to act, but they are keeping a close eye on moisture. How saturated is the ground?? Your lawn is usually brown now "if" you don't water it. Water is not evaporating. and that means grass is greener, and has to be mowed more often.

Brett Lambrecht – Richland County Emergency Manager: “that's really throwing us for a curve ball that we're getting more water more water more water and not draining and we're not, we should be all drained out now and drying out with some timely rains but it seems like it just keeps raining more.”

Cass County leaders say they plan to start talks within weeks.
