Postdiluvian Civilization

Because of floods along the Missouri River, Interstate 29 has been closed since the middle of May.

Although floodwater inconveniences significantly a modern gentleman traveling between Kansas City and Omaha, he admits the transformation of Rockport, Missouri, into an actual port has improved the forgettable weigh station.

Late summer typically brings bustling combines to the region’s cornfields. This summer, egrets wade lazily along abandoned roads and barn rooves bob like rafts on virgin lakes.

Many farmers will be ruined, but some will find solace in living, however briefly, on the waterfront.
