I wander where this is going to end up, 5+" and still poring down. Schools closed for it today. will get some pics when it gets lighter. Just found out that in are flat land that we have, enough water ran that it washed the cars and ambulances off the roads. No tornados here. State highways are closed [flooded], no one moves very far. Now they are watching 2 dams in Monticello for possible failure.:O:O Update both highway bridges have been closed until inspected, one person died in this[got washed away] and water will probley be gone by noon tomarrow, and the power went off for 4 hours. Boil order on, and ended up with 5 3/4" in about 7 hrs. Only good thing is the beach front propety moved closer. SORRY ROY}:):O

Hate to see all this happening Levi. Just wish there was more we all could do. All this natural disaster going on and all we see on the news is "BLA-BLA-BLA" from our fine "candidates"

Looks like the state got all of the highways open. The trailer park will be completly junked, water was 6 feet up in them, almost all of the over flow is gone now I got a new trailer in the back [the remains of the office trialer crushed at the US231 highway,it went under the bridge looks pretty straight though], all of the people from the trailer park are out of a home yet.

Just got done looking at the links, WOW! Very sad, so many people out of there homes.:( Around here the memories of the Mississippi river flood of '93 are still vivid. Never been directly effected, but know plenty who have. I hope you and yours are all able to move on.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
