We live in Union...we made the news before anybody in STL County or Jefferson County. Bourbese River has gone way down, and most of those businesses that the national news showed with water in them (McDonald's, Dickey Bub Farm & Home, Quick Trip and Jack-in-the-Box) are out of the flood waters now, but have a heck of a clean-up facing them. In all of my years in Missouri, I've never seen one this bad in the winter. The '93 flood was caused by water coming down the Mississippi and Missouri from far up-stream. This one was a torrential rain over a short period. We had between 10 and 10.5 inches at our house in 3 days.

We live right in the center of town, at one of the highest points, so we were out of the flooding, but that McDonald's is only aboutt 4 blocks from us.

Stay safe, Cowracer and ryand...and everybody else around here.

I was in a flood like this back in 1973 in Oklahoma the hole town of 40,000 people under water. Very bad deal I was a lot younger back then. I feel for you and hope all turns out for the best for all folks and there families.
I've never lived in a low area since those days. And I'm still living on a hill today. I've been stranded here from flood waters but the waters and road and bridges washed away but it never came close to getting into my house. That 1973 flood has stuck in my mind since that flood. Sad part of life and my prayer are with you all.
