It seems the market is not the only thing that is testing our mind/heart/nerve/will, the midwest flood has also caused substantial demage to WI, IA, IL and the Show Me state. Couple days ago the levee at Hanibal broke. Don’t know if the Mark Twain museum there has been demaged?
The Missisipi River will crest STL in next few days. It is expected STL will be safe because the levees upstream broke, and some of the water diverted from there.
