  • Yet another great photo-blog!!!I can just imagine how much gigging and grabbing could be done in some of those holes!!!Oh, yeah, quicksand does spring to mind, especially if around a sand blow, but fishing is the last thing on the minds of those folks!!!Thoughts and prayers go forth, as we get ready for a head of water up here along the Missouri. Thanks again, James for a great piece. P.S. anything left of the Belmont area??? Regards, kkr

  • I like your coverage of this. Although I can't agree with your assessment of the infrastructure. I have seen several roads destroyed and many ditches silted in (some of them very large ditches). You missed an area of destruction. You show some pictures near Big Oak Park. You should take a look due south of the Park.

    Thanks for the pictures.

  • geoclay: Which roads have been destroyed? I may have to re-visit some of the places I missed.

    kkr: There wasn't much at Belmont even before the flood.
