I think this is about the fourth time in 13 years this runway has been under water at least partially. I'm more worried about the restaurant which has been flooded four times in that same period and rebuilt at least once. The owners seem to have gotten pretty good about how to pull out the equipment and clean up after a flood. With this week's dry spell, I think they'll get away without any trouble this year. Too bad they can't move the whole restaurant a couple hundred yards up the road to higher ground.
