I'm from South Sioux City, NE and my sister still lives there. My Mother's house and my sisters house are in danger of being lost, if the 1st of the 2 levee's don't hold. My step-father's family was from the Decatur area originally, Ted Mayberry, his parents were Bill and Marie Mayberry. I've been watching the pictures daily on Face Book and appreciate you posting this picture. By the way, I love reading your books too!!!!Wendy Newcomb now in St. Cloud, FL
My mouth just fell open. I had no idea that part of the country was dealing with the flooding, too. Is the worst of it over? (I hope!)
WENDY??? My husband farms a piece of land he calls Mayberry's.It's probably at least family.I think the sign will be gone by tomorrow. Underwater. I put more pictures up on Facebook but I don't know if someone who doesn't know Decatur can appreciate the craziness.
This must be one of the rainiest years in a long time! We're dealing with some flooding too, up above and a little over from your lovely state.
I drove through that area on I-29 last week, going south on Wednesday and then north on Friday. I could tell a difference even between those two days. Many, many people are being affected by this flooding - not only from the rivers rising, but also the water table rising, causing flooding in basements, etc.Mary, you're high and dry on your bluff, right?
Mary, I'm Lynne Rogers. Thank you for posting pictures of Decatur! I Live Not too far from the Morman Bridge and it's just awful off 680 and 29! Please post any pictures of the town you can!! Growing up in the area it's nice someone put up pitures for those of us who moved away!
