Hannibal Flood Warning

I received this urgent bulletin calling for all sand-baggers to report for sand-bagging duty and help save Hannibal from a possible 500-year flood. Click on the letter below...

Dear Ones, though my houses are close to downtown Hannibal and also the Mississippi River, I'm far enough away from the flood zone to not have to worry about this. I made a point of not buying in this area after peering into the basements of properties that have flooded many times. That so many of these 100 to 150-year old structures are still being used today is amazing.

I've experienced both the big 1973 and 1993 floods, so we'll see if this one is the record-breaker.
