Maggie’s Pick 7.1.14: ‘When the Levee Breaks’ by Led Zeppelin

So topical.

It’s been flooding, like I figured it would this summer. I wouldn’t be surprised if come August, Ames is experiencing some serious water damage once again from floooooding. I hope not, but I’ve lived through too many Iowa flood years. Maybe I should move away from river towns.

Nah. I love rivers. Also, it should be noted that this is a cover of sorts, of a blues song from 1929 about the 1927 Mississippi River flood by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie.
