Flooding Rivers

On Saturday, April 14, 1951, Dale’s mother Jettie, his sister Marie and her daughter Susan, and his brother Lloyd’s daughter Carol arrived in Muscatine in the afternoon to stay all night.  Dale took them for a ride around town in Marie’s car the next day, and to see the Cedar River.  The diary doesn’t say the Cedar River was flooding, but why else would they go?  The Mississippi was rising, as seen above several years earlier when Wilma (Helen’s sister), her husband George Casey and their son Larry were visiting.
