We had extremely heavy rainfall near the house. Warnings were going off around the area. Danelle and I decided to dress up and go out for a walk. During the walk, we stopped and helped redirect traffic on South Brentwood blvd to allow a bus to back up and turn around safely. The driver was… Continue reading Webster Groves Flooding – 8/30/2019

Rivers have been up quite a bit in 2011. I paddle the Meramec river at least once per month. I watch the water levels as I pass over the river to work each day. I’ve often taken the kids to Emmenegger park to hang out and hike trails. On this particular day, Danelle was sick… Continue reading 4.26 – Emmenegger Flooding
