Floods

Hey everyone I just wanted to let you know that I might really be out of commission for a while. The levy nearest to my house (approx 1/2 to 3/4 miles away) was breeched last night. If you are a praying people my family and neighbors could really use some! It's not bad yet just a relitivly small breach but we were sandbagging last night and will probably continue tonight. (so much for getting our hardwood finished this week!) I'll let ya'll know as I can! I think we'll be ok, but the rest of the push from the Mississippi isn't expected for another couple of weeks so we're in this for awhile.
Have a great day!

Keep us posted. Even through this, I miss St. Louis. Hope you are okay as well as your neighbors.

Oh girl! I had no idea how close the new house was to all of that! I am sure everything will be fine. I know I am like 8 hours away but you know if you need anything... call me! Love you!

Ahhh! That would freak me out a little bit, as I am terribly afraid of water. I have been thinking about you, though. The river by my parents' branch building has flooded, too, but not a whole lot. Be careful!
