The Kernels are on the road, but our thoughts are with our friends in Cedar Rapids as they are about to experience a flood called “historic” and “catastrophic.”

Veterans Memorial Stadium is on a slight hill and just beyond the perimeter of the mandatory evacuation area, so it appears there’s no danger for now, but let’s not forget that some Kernels’ host parents and boosters may face evacuation.
