Yes, I live in a small community sometimes called a Map Dot! We have 3 traffic lights, 4 gas stations , 3 banks, 3 dollar stores and one grocery store. The closing of I40 from Little Rock to Memphis has been an event to say the least. All west bound traffic has been rerouted through our community. Poor truckers reported on the evening news that it took them 4 1/2 hours to drive 120 miles yesterday. The stop lights are not helping.
Traffic was backed up for 8 miles yesterday.........
There was a total of 10 state troopers at two stop lights...directing the truckers. I got a laugh from this man in the middle of the highway, map in hand, getting directions.
As they inch along, they have had ample time to see the countryside and floodwater.
This shot sums it up. Hip boots on sleeves rolled up, trying to save as many homes as possible. These guys are walking up a driveway between the following two houses.
Look at the fence....they just moved in this house recently. For insurance purposes they had to build the foundation up...I know they are thankful!
This cabin was built on 8 foot stilts....
Have a good Friday all!
