Glad to hear that everybody is alright over there. It sucks about the damages to the houses, cars, and other things but better than get hurt or die from it.

I live down in the cities and we got it lightly compared to you guys. I heard a bear got out of his area at the zoo but never got off the property. I hope everything is good for you b/c some of the photos I saw were just amazing. I'm originally from STL so I'm used to the Mississippi flooding and destroying stuff.

Glad to hear everyone is OK , and to see you make a little fun for your selfs in a bad time . The worse thing about a flood is the bad part is when its gone and the clean up begins . I was ground zero for our flood here last year and it was devastating to alot of people . Most lost everything , it made me feel so horrible , to see what was left of there lives stacked on the street . And then there were thief's coming and taking it ( how friggen low is that ) , they'll go to hell I'm sure .
I do construction from time to time and jumped right in both feet , we worked round the clock for 2 days and then 18 hours a day for almost five weeks , almost all of us got sick . I still have night mirrors , even though we got paid alot for it I would never want to do it again .

ya luckly for use not many people actlully lost homes and stuff but TONS of property damage like roads totally washed out car lots flooded to the point at a Cadillac dealer the old things you could see was the building and about 4 inch of all the full size SUVs it sounds like they wont open the zoo back though becuse of all the damage and they JUST fixed it up nice and its gone =/ so like little things like that suck but its only by the grace of god nobody died
