My dear friends are being kicked out of their home by the Missouri River. We've spent the past 5 days loading all their belongings into a semi trailer and into my house and somehow they still find a way to keep it in perspective that there has been no loss of life, and they had enough warning to save their belongings. The flood waters have not yet come, and if the levees hold they will only see water in their basement so we are keeping our fingers crossed. They'll be moving into a fifth wheel at the KOA until the Army Corps of Engineers gives them the all clear. Looks like it'll be about 60 days before its all said and done. Evacuation hasn't been made mandatory for their section yet, but the air conditioner, water heater and all appliances have been moved to safety.
One tiny little plus is that I have gotten to see more of them in the last 5 days than in the last 3 months, and I have people to cook for.
Last night we started with ABT's
They could have stayed on a bit longer, but the natives were getting restless
Then we kicked up the Egg, dropped the spider and a cast iron in.
I picked up a prime rib roast and cut a few steaks off before beginning my dry age dabble. Wish I had cut them thicker.
Put on some crashed potatoes while they were getting updates.
Set it all together with some steamed greenbeans.
