Here we go again: the poor little doggy just sits between hubby and I shaking, the thunder keeps on, the rain is coming down, the skies are almost black and the wind is blowing. Can we have anything more? At least no tuornados thank God.

Parts of Missouri and eastern AR can't take anymore water and again, it seems that is where the heaviest rainfall will happen with this system.

Most of the gravel and dirt roads in the county here are in bad shape, some have sections completely washed out. Luckily, we can still get in and out with our trucks. I know this is minor compared to what other areas are dealing with.

The situation in Pocahontas AR is now being called catastrophic after the levee breech this morning. What a scary situation for anyone there. As someone from south Louisiana, I've seen what this can do to a community. Just devastating and more rain is falling today.

it may not be bad in Bella Vista but it is very bad in Pocahontas.


Arkansas Democrat Gazette is covering it and certainly not exaggerating.


Videos don't lie.

my oh my, you can certainly have some bad days huh? I didn't mean it isn't bad, it is bad all over or was. Thank God we are now seeing sunshine. I didn't mean it wasn't bad and yes, we are very lucky even though we got some roads washed out and lots of damage to the golf courses, I simply meant, regardless of how bad it appears to be, things could be worse and they could be worse.

and btw, yes, videos can lie and you must not know much about the media if you don't think they exaggerate. I am not saying the D. G did, but yes, they do exaggerate.
