Flood Damage


Recommended Posts

Sorry to hear.  It looks really sandy.  Is that sand in the soil profile or from the flooding?   What caused the big pot hole?

How much rain did you end up with? We got 10" last week spread over about 3 or 4 days. It washed stuff out, but it wasn't too bad since it had been so dry it soaked a lot of it up, but we still have a lot of standing water and the river is well over it's banks. I spent all week trying to fix the gravel roads that got beat up from 4 days of rain with cars hammering them. Did you have crops planted in those flooded fields?

Strange pot hole. Never seen the river wash like that. What river are you along there? 

the grindstone creek, runs north out of cameron mo, hits the grand river at pattonsburg, pattonsburg used to flood so bad as a kid they moved the entire town now

Sorry that you have that much damage.  Is that field a total loss?  

about 60 to 70 percent i would say - will be doing some replanting for sure

we have never had that happen in all our years here and all the floods regarding the hole, the water rolled across the adjacent field, created a wave it appears and where the wave was created from crossing the road ditch the wave ate into the road. 

there is a of sand in the soil in spots where it washes and leaves bars from deposits from the creek, also sand in the soil to some degree oddly enough, kind of uncommon around here other than these creek areas, lots of clay and little topsoil - great for gardening with the sandy stuff as it doesnt clump and things sprout easily

- thanks for the kinds words everyone, we havent had this bad of a flood in a lot of years. We looked for arrowheads and only found pieces, used to be native americans on our ground and up stream just a bit is where they wintered. We find stuff off/on when it floods, my sister told some guy she works with he could go hunt and he went down and brought someone with him ( I found all his tracks )  right as the water receded so none of the family got to go look.  He wont be coming back because our family wants to do the hunting.

We lived in Cameron when I was a kid in the sixties. I remember horsing around in Grindstone with my buddies.  I guess your part of it is east of Weatherby?

I did.  I guess that's the same storm that sent one through Albany.  My mom and step dad got trapped in their crawl space in that one.  The a.c compressor blew up against the crawl space door and blocked them in.  A neighbor heard them hollering and moved it so they could get out.

Wow! 
sorry about your neighbors and your flood damage. 
looks like you also found the “lady of the lake” there… did she bestow a sword upon you like King Arthur?

I heard there was a lot of rain up your way, the Missouri was banked full north of me. we lucked out and had a nice 2 1/2" rain, i have been in your shoes and it is no fun, hoping you can get it leveled out and replanted.
