Walking with Superman: Day 338
The small town of Modale, IA, has been almost completely evacuated, in anticipation of severe flooding from the overflowing Missouri River. The visiting Man of Tomorrow even stood ready to change the course of the mighty river, if it would prevent damage and destruction. But the flood never came. In fact, as the sun beats down in the cloudless sky, the river is running a lot shallower than usual. Wells and water tanks are running dry, and even the bottles on the grocery store shelves are going dry. The Thirst has come to Iowa, and it won't be satisfied until the entire country is a desert--unless Superman can stop it!
