I know what you mean, I also live in southern Missouri and several of the area towns were evacuated. The gravel road at both ends of my property line were under water, several fences along the road are GONE!!! Many of the old timers say this is one of the worst they have ever seen in my area. I also hear we are supposed to get more rain throughout the week, not good with the ground saturated the way it is.
I can kind of relate...I live in Ohio..We have had one of the snowiest winters I can remember. I have never been more ready for the spring weather. Hang in there you guys. Hopefully sunnier days are ahead..
