I was hoping to write a fun and happy post for today but unfortunately Mother Nature had different plans. This last weekend where we live in central Missouri got 10+ inches of water and has caused massive flooding. Fortunately we live on high ground and have no personal damage but our “home” is suffering.
That is an ariel shot from a friend’s drone showing downtown of the small town next to us and where Emmalyne goes to preschool. This was AFTER some of the water had receded. Homes have been lost and tons of damage has been done. My commute to work is currently on detour (and over 2x as long) because the interstate looks like this:
This poor quality photo was taken during the height of the flooding and shows one of the entrance gates to Fort Leonard Word where Chris works.
And while everyone is trying to get roads opened and repaired as well as survey all the other damage done we are expecting another 2-3 inches of rain between today and tomorrow. So I ask if you have a second to say a little payer for Missouri and send us all the positive vibes you can. We kind of need it.
