    They should be here within the hour. One of my brothers is hosting another family and he is on his way. This area is absolutely devastated by the flood waters, and it's not over yet. Mississippi hasn't crested yet. There is a sewer plant that is totally under water and is leaking sewage into the Meramec River.

    The Woman who is staying with me has 2 pre teen girls. I have all the fun games, junk food etc for them. They lost all their Xmas gifts and possessions. If FEMA gets involved they can relocate, but not sure where. Whole towns around here are just under water.

    Really just wanted to say it. Thanks for reading.

    It's so bad in some places you can't tell where the town was. It's just all water. The Meramec River normally has a high flood reserve of 14 feet. It's at over 40 right now. It's headed south to AR and KY.

    Thank you. Honestly I feel it's paying it forward. I got so much help so many years ago and I have space here. I know how devastating it can be for young girls to deal with tragedy. They have a dog, so my dog will have a playmate too. They are coming here from my brothers house on 4 wheelers because there is water over my stream crossing. The adventure begins!

    Well then they stay here until they can go someplace permanent
    They are like the other ppl in this (red)neck of the woods. White

    A couple weeks at least. Right now with the continued flooding there are no homes or apartments available.

    Hope they gets lots of help. I imagine they will be in shock and moving through the grief stages. :(

    The cleanup is going to be a nightmare. My brother stocked up on bleach, rubber gloves, boots and masks. We will help with cleanup once the water recedes.
    They better! The kids can watch tv in another room, but I'm watching TZ
