WHEN RIVERS GET ANGRY
10-inch rainfalls have turned
Missouri streams and rivers into
torrential flood waters,
covering roads and highways,
driving people from their homes
(Unfortunately, accounting for several deaths.)
The beautiful Meramec River has been
especially hard hit, unable to handle the
unrelenting rains and runoff.
The last 2 images show Maggie (daughter)
and Andy's river house, and our
historic riverview cabin . . .
1) View from their 2nd floor bedroom window,
overtaking their river home, and
2) Hillside overlook of the cabin (see the roof?)
surrounded by the Meramec River waters.
(It's as close as we could get.)
Most rivers crest on Wednesday.
No way to tell how much damage
until the waters recede.
People's lives and property suffer
when "rivers get angry."
