Someplace in the state that isn't under water, or hammered by tornadoes... The state Capital, Jefferson City, got hit hard by a massive tornado. Three fatalities in Golden City, and Joplin got hit - again.
Jeeze.... I feel fortunate that I only had a little bit of water in the basement. So far... Rain chances predicted pretty much all next week.
But there's no climate change, right?

What can I say? Weather has been changing all over, and I fear that it will only get worse. Probably quicker than anticipated too. Those willfully ignorant fools who deny climate change will never admit that it's occurring, not even if their house is submerged in a flood or blown away by a tornado. Our beautiful Earth is suffering due to Man's ignorance and greed. Mama Earth is angry at us and likely will eventually throw humans off like fleas on an elephant.
I do hope that you can find a way to remove yourself from this mess. Move, research and move to a more hospitable area. Good luck, Rod. I feel for you.
You guys sure seem to have a bullseye painted over you. When I heard that Missouri had been hit I was worried it was close to you. I hope the weather gives you a break soon and that you get a buyer for that house. Keep your head down and the pontoon gassed up.
Why pray to a deity that lets these drastic weather conditions to occur in the first place? He/She didn't need it to happen. Or maybe it's one way to let the world know who's boss. All you can do is hope and prepare for any eventuality. The best of luck, my friend.
I'm using up the rain as fast as I can Rod! But it keeps escaping and heading your way!!!
Lynn is next in the storm lotto!!!
We're relatively unpopulated here in the fly overs... I'm really worried about our weather hitting the massively over crowded Coast!
Hey Rod, I'm commenting for 2 reasons, one to affirm, yes, the midwest is getting deluged, and you got some of its effects...and yes, some people got overpowered by those floods and storms and godawful tornados. I hope you don't get anymore bed weather-effects your way, and of course I hope all the other things that have befallen you and Jo will cease, as well. I hope Jo is better (and continues to get better), and that your repair and move will be as smooth as possible from her on out. Second, I neglected to wish you a good Memorial Day (mea culpa!) and to convey my heartfelt thanks for all your service, which I've been aware of for a while now. I didn't mention it ONLY because I was concentrating on all the other s__t that's befallen you of late! But I know you were in SE Asia, and you put in a long stint, and I'm always grateful for your service in that heavy, heavy war. On that, thank you for your very thoughtful comment, I really love hearing about your experiences over there, I learn more each time as you have a lot to share. I always appreciate hearing from someone who was there. I'm grateful that you did all that, and were no doubt on-the-ready should the battle come to your doorstep. Many thanks, Rod, and all good things to you from here on out...
