Flood warnings... drive carefully to Ninnescah!

With all of deluge of rain that we have had lately (record rains and record LOW temperatures for the month of July!!), there are flood warnings for the Ninnescah and Arkansas rivers. Please be especially careful on the rural roads when driving to Ninnescah.  It should be a very interesting night at the field station!
