I had a really good excuse ........ <span style="font-size:12px;">(Edited 05/16/11 03:52PM by sports_schmorts)</span> PhotoThis was DD highway & Elk River in Noel,Mo. April 25th,2011 . At the end of this road is my hubby's work. This river's edge is normally 15 to 20 ft to the water from the side of the road- NOT ON THIS DAY! By the next morning the river was down back in the bank where it's suppost to be.An ice freezer from a local gas station was found on the other side of the river.I'm so thankful that I live on a mountain top !  My hubby had a good excuse why he didn't show up for work!

What?  You mean he couldn't just go along that river bank there on the side of the road?  (er, I mean along the side of the road...It looks like high ground to me.)

Seriously, I'm glad he didn't make any foolish attempts to go through that.  I often see idiots here who would try to go through something like that.

Stay safe.

This is a common site in Evansville these days. We're on our 9th straight day of heavy rain, hail and tornados. As of this morning, 53 roads are closed in the county due to flooding. I think its safe to refer to the Ohio River as the Ohio Ocean this week.

Glad you are safe, Cindy.  The county next to mine has had tornado warnings all afternoon and night.  So far it has missed my county, just a couple of showers.
