Flash Flood Warning In Effect

My phone texted me this morning with this message:  Flash Flood Warning this area til 1:30 pm CDT.  Avoid flood areas.  Check local media. – NWS

It has been raining hard and steady since sometime last night.  I would be more surprised if there wasn’t a flash flood warning.

However, that isn’t what concerns me at the moment.  We camp on the beautiful Elk River.  The Elk River is normally a lazily moving river that isn’t very deep in most places and is prone to flooding.  And when I say we camp on the Elk, I really do mean it.  Wayside Campground where we stay is in a low water area and it is about 15 meters from our door to the river.

Not only is Columbia, Missouri and Kansas City, Missouri and St. Louis, Missouri flooding, but in Noel, Missouri it is expected to rain for the next several days.

My best just informed me that she is flooded in.  All roads leading out of her subdivision have been closed.  Pity, we were going to have lunch today.

Anyway, crossing my fingers about vacation…

  1. I’m supposed to run errands before I go out of town for a week. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about that. This rain is crazy!


  2. I told my mom this weather makes me feel like I need to figure out what a cubit is and start building! 🙂
