This kid wasn't going to let anything stop him from making it to prom in Montana.

With flood waters surrounding their home near Glasgow, and the county road leaving the ranch covered in 2 1/2 feet of water- Trevor Klind had to get creative. So he hopped into the kayak and made it to prom.

It's been a long week for Trevor and other area farmers and ranchers. While he's smiling big in the kayak on the way to prom, his mom Toby Klind said she had to tell us the full story:

We are in the full swing of calving and live right on the river, so we pulled Trevor out of school this week to move all the cattle and hay to higher ground, which makes everything a lot harder. So he has had to put in some really long days this week and he was really excited to get to the other side of the river and see other human life form rather than just us, cows, mud and water.

The 100 Best Places to Live in the Midwest

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
