My 'floodshapedir' and 'shapebase' are both variables with path stored
in.  Here's the function call with the strings explicitly passed.  I
don't think it's an issue with these paths.

OGR data source with driver: ESRI Shapefile
Source: "FloodShapes", layer: "2013Spring_Flood_Drawn"
with 8 features
It has 2 fields

[1] NA
