The flood waters roll into St. Louis

The flood waters are doing horrific damage in many places in Iowa. Down-river in St. Louis, we are not expected to sustain much damage, but you can see that the flood waters have arrived. The following photo was taken today. It shows two girls and a dog (all of them had the last name of “Vieth”) checking out the flooding of a major street near the Mississippi River in downtown St. Louis.
