Route 66 Sites Suffer in Missouri Flooding

I am very sorry to find out that many of Route 66's best sites in Missouri have suffered so badly in the flooding that took place (and still is) because of the torrential rains there this last week.

I was excited to read about the little town of Devil's Elbow and special bar Elbow Inn making the NRHP list last week, now, according to a county official there, "Devil's Elbow is gone."  The worst flood ever in that place.

Plus, the Gasconade River was over the Gasconade Bridge near Lebanon.  We were at that bridge last April in an effort to save the bridge from being torn down.  It was saved, but hopefully now it won't be flooded away.
