    I live in Arkansas and in my area we are having extreme flooding. A few towns are being evacuated already and could be more to come.

    Me and my girlfriend and her kids house is fine so far and my moms house is okay so far. I have a couple of friends and family that have pretty much lost everything they have do to the flooding. I know a few members here are from Arkansas as well, my thoughts are with them and their families. I hope everyone is safe!!

    We can always replace or personal items even though it may be hard but we can not replace family and friends.

    Any thoughts, prayers or good vibes sent our way would be awesome.

    Yes man, prayers sent your way for sure. I was in a house fire when I was younger, I know it's just material things but it's such a struggle, loosing everything but the shirt on your back and building it all back up again... my prayers for you and yours that this thing will pass and not a bit of what you have will be lost. I pray to my Lord and Savior for your well being.

    They came to my moms house today and told her she needs to evacuate within the next 24 hours. So I'm going to go get my mom and bring her to my house since she is disabled.

    Thanks IGC and distinguishedPapyrus for the good thoughts!!!

    Thanks man.

    Today water went over the roads where I work. So I won't able to work for awhile but I have some new gear to play with so that helps.

    My mom had to evacuate and I haven't at my house now.

    The national guard showed up today to help people and shelters have been set up now. My house safe so far so fingers crossed.

    It's started raining again though and a a damn and levee have broke. Water still is rising so it's just a waiting game now.

    +1. Thought about this thread today while I was at work. A tv was on in a break room with some news clips out of Arkansas.

    EDIT: saw your reply above just a minute before I posted

    Keep us updated, man. Sending some prayers your way.
    I used to live in Arkansas and my parents still do so I know how bad it gets over there.

    I live in Texas, so I know that feeling of watching the flood waters rise in the street, then into your yard and wondering if they'll come into your house. Fortunately, I've never been flooded, but my parents and grand parents have been.

    If it's any consolation, things get back to normal afterward. It's not easy at first (in fact, it's a pain in the @ss) and it takes a while, but it does get back to normal.

    How are your family and your mom hanging in there today?

    We are hanging in man. Thank you!!

    They are hoping tomorrow they will open a few roads back up. I had to take a boat to get to my moms house but water didn't make it inside so she got really lucky.

    We will know more tomorrow, hopefully the water starts going down like they think it will.

    Prayers for folk in your area.
    Being a Cherokee from the East originally, my family settled in Ozark country post the Trail of Tears. Mom's side ended up in Russelville, Ar, dad's side down in S.E. Texas.
    I have a fondness for that part of the country.
    Godspeed my friend.

    My parents and sister live near the area but are thankfully not in a flood zone. Nearby Pocahontas is completely underwater though thanks to Black River flooding the area.

    Hope OP is doing okay and is just busy jamming away.

    We are doing good!! I got my mom back in her home yesterday, she was very happy to see everything safe. Helped a few friends that had water in their houses but they all were very lucky. I know of some who didn't get as lucky though.

    They are starting to open roads up and letting people begin the clean ups. It could have been so much worse for everyone!! Thankful for the luck we had that's for sure!!

    Thank you all for sending your thoughts and positive energy my way! Things like this truly amazes me, kind words can do so much good for people it's a blessing to be able to share what's happening in life and know that we all here will be supportive to each other.

    Thank you!!!!
