Flooding In Missouri...

Wherever you go,  no matter what the weather,
 always bring your own sunshine.  Fool me once shame on you.  
Fool me twice, shame on me.  Fool me 92,748 times, you are a weather man...

They say pictures tell more than words.  Here are pictures from
 yesterdays flooding in Branson and and other parts of Missouri.

That's from home.  The water became so much that we had a stream 
running through the front and backyard.  When I sent the video to my
 family and some friends they thought it was a gushing river.  Unfortunately 
videos do not upload too well here, otherwise I would share it.

You can just look at this picture and tell we are not the type to have 
a house.  We had to make a little drain for the water to not get into the house.  Yup.
  We used a machete to make that drain.  We have no shovel, maybe now we will HAVE 
to get one.  Both Arvid and I looked at each other and said, "we have to get back home."

I DON'T like having a house!  The pictures below are from 
downtown Branson.  It's called the Landings.  Our favorite spot in Branson. 
Lots of restaurants, condos and retail shops.  Flooded! The pictures were not taken
 by me, one of Arvid's tenant's shared them on FB and I borrowed them.

Below is another part of Missouri flooded yesterday.  More rain predicted.

Branson yesterday:

In Florida we have the hurricanes.  Here tornadoes and constant 
bad weather it seems.  Looking forward one day to just some sunshine and
a little more "stable" weather.  For now Happy Sunday to everyone.

Humans and weather.  The two most unpredictable things in life...
