Keeping Farm Machinery Above Floodwaters

4/24/13-Millions of dollars worth of farm machinery that might otherwise be under water sits high and dry on the property of the Ameren Missouri Sioux Power Plant in West Alton, Mo. Plant superintendent of safety and administration Tim Hentchel says it's a tradition that goes back decades to allow nearby farm owners to park their uber-expensive equipment on their property until floodwaters recede. He says they empathize with the hardships that high water can bring. "We've actually had to get to work by boat on seven different occasions," he says of the workers at the Sioux Power Plant, which sits on a wedge of land between the rain-swollen Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.
