Hello Friends,

Wow Lynda, that sounds very scary!!! I'm glad you and everyone in the area are Okay. Earthquakes are really scary. NO Sounds like Panda is doing well, 8 1/2 is a good healthy size for a cat. I have seen some previews of the Danish Girl, I did not know it was a true story.

Annie, Thank you for your kind words for Lynn and congrats for Stacy and Jimmy. I saw you are getting us ready for 2016. 2015 has come and gone like flash. I wish life would slow down a little. Thanks for getting us set up for the new year my friend. Thank You

Judi, Your experience with the earthquake sounded scary too, especially in the dark. I'm glad there was no damage or lives lost.Nodding yes

Great photos Naoma from the RR Dam, that is alot of rushing water. Thanks for sharing. Thank You

Scott, I loved the photo of Holly covered in snow. She sure was lucky to find such a special home. Wub

Doreen, The Mississippi River will crest at 35.24 feet tomorrow at the Lock and Dams in Alton. It is only a few feet below the the record flooding of 1993.
I hope you have a very Happy New Year too my friend. hug

I did make it to Alton and parked on high ground and walked down to the flooded areas. The Great River Road is closed due to the Mississippi being over the road. Here are some of the photos I got today. I also posted all the photos at FB.

All three of these photos are of the area where the Great River Road starts. They have sandbagged around the old historical building to prevent them from being flooded. The tall building is a Grain Mill, the blue strip on the building is how high the river flooded in 1993.

There is a floating casino on the river in Alton. The parking area is totally under water.

I sure hope that mother nature is a little more calm in 2016. Smile

I will post an update when Lynn and I get home tomorrow, one appointment is at 8am and the other at 245pm. A very long but important day.

Good night

Good to hear nothing happened other than being awoken fby the quake elle. Smile
Nice that Panda has added a little more weight.

Cool pics of the water release from the dam Naoma. I would imagine it would be very loud with that much water running through so fast. Wink

It is hard to believe yet another year has flown by Annie! I probably should decide what I'm going to do with my life soon I suppose. Titter
I think Lori's "Eagleholics 12 Steps" should always be the start of a new year. Smile

You could always invest in one of these instead of shovelling Doreen. Titter
Not fun when it sleets then freezes so quickly. Glad that your landlord gave you a break. Smile
That's cute the kitties wait for you to get home after work even if they're not supposed to be up there.

Lovely pics showing how high the water is getting in some areas of Alton Linda. I hope it starts receding soon. Smile
The floating casino seems like a smart idea.

That looks pretty good if it works as easily as the video shows Iona. How much snow are you hoping for? Smile
