What If - Trivia Question

With all the news, both local and national about the flooding in the Carlye/St. Louis area, it is somewhat fun to study the "what If" theory.

For those that know St. Louis, what is the only road that you can "get out of town" on without crossing a river?

This was part of my job at Ralston, many years ago. I was part of a disaster recovery team and had to have plans in place to keep a World Corporation going even if the Headquarters was isolated or even gone. Always good to have a "what If" plan in your head and shared with your immediate family and friends. Its not a "dooms dayer" attitude, its a survivor attitude and being able to say "bring it on, is that your best shot".

Back to the Trivia Question - Manchester Road or Highway 100 going west.

Yep, when the water gets high enough Carlyle becomes an island. Nice high/dry ground, but surrounded by lakes and swollen streams, creeks and rivers on all sides.

As you travel, do you really know where you are? What county are you in? If you have to call 911, the Dispatcher may need to know that. Especially if you are using a cell phone. Having the Sheriff Department's "other number" is worthwhile.

Pay Attention, it makes great trivia questions.
