I am in bad shape here I don't want to surrender but I won't be able to given good reports in the near future. My habitat is being overrun by water just hope they nest high this year it's hasn't stopped filling up. Too much rain last year it was unreal my path got wider and higher to stay out of the muck. So I will not be seeking an other term here at the White House on the Prairie. Twelve years ago it was nothing like it is now I been though the good bad and ugly here. I am not going to be able to stop its eroding all around me history in the making. Looking SE the water has been going though that shelter belt all winter there was thin ice in places. Four large soughs (AKA Lakes) are connected now what ever fish that have been land locked in there sloughs are now free. Looking west looks like prevent planting there not getting to that island this year. Looking north I am sitting right in the middle this its unreal I have to ATV my way around the lake 2 miles. Its official I live on a Island.
