I know some of you will be concerned, about Rooty.

Rooty and I are high and dry, we are not in any floodplain. The lake came up several feet but went down quickly. The house is 20 feet above the lake.

Mother is near the Missouri River but high up -- it she flooded most of the Midwest would be under water. Depending up whether or not I-44 is closed by the flood waters, Rooty and I may not be able to go to her house for Easter. I-44, as did US66, goes through all of the towns that will see the worst flooding from the Meramec River -- Fenton, Valley Park, Eureka, and Pacific. The Meramec is expected to reach an all-time high crest and might be two-feet over I-44 at Valley Park. MODOT is going to sandbag and try to keep it open.

Glad to hear that all is well with you and Rooty. Could you get to your mom's house by going south in Illinois and then going west?? Whatever you do, enjoy your Easter Weekend.

I didn't think to be concerned about Rooty. He seems to smart to live in a flood prone area.
