Hello folks, I have been gone for a week and haven't had time to visit with you good folks. We had heavy rain here and north of us May 5 and 6. Have had several levy breaches and breaks in our area, and the fire department and local officials have bee very busy. I as assistant fire chief and the Mrs. as sec./treas. of the fire board and sec. of the local emergency planning committee have had several near sleepless nights and days in the last week. I am putting a web site here to show the village of Big Lake,Mo. which is 9 miles south of us along the Missouri River. We were able to keep water out of our town, except for seep water which we were able to keep pumped out with a 12" pump which we borrowed form the conservation department. Sorry I haven't been arround and hope this finds all well and I'll be back as soon as time and schedule will allow.
