spring river

You too could own this river frontage and 50 acres for about $120,000. It's a couple miles downstream from Mammoth Spring, Ark., which produces almost 10 million gallons of water an hour to become Spring River. When we were there dreaming, the skies were already lowering, as you can see. I arrived home to the following weather bulletin:
A LINE OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WAS LOCATED ALONG A
LINE EXTENDING TO ALTON...AND MOVING
NORTHEAST AT 50 MPH.
HAZARD...60 MPH WIND GUSTS.
IMPACT...EXPECT DAMAGE TO ROOFS...SIDING AND TREES.
LOCATIONS IMPACTED INCLUDE...
ALTON AND THOMASVILLE.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
FOR YOUR PROTECTION MOVE TO AN INTERIOR ROOM ON THE LOWEST FLOOR OF A BUILDING.
A TORNADO WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 900 PM CDT WEDNESDAY EVENING
However, so far we have escaped fire and tornado, hail and high water. Spring is exciting in many ways here in the heart of the heart of the country.
