Joshua Cochran, left, of Jefferson City, Mo., and Ron Kautsch, of Eagle River, Alaska, carry their work boots as they walk to a house Kautsch wants to sell, Thursday morning, May 10, 2007, in Lupus, Mo. By Thursday morning, low spots in the town which were inundated by the Missouri River during the 1993 flood, were covered by only about a foot to 18 inches of backed up water from the Big Splice and Little Splice creeks. They said the flood would not affect their work plans.
