It will be hard to forget last summer's flood, after leaving a lot of folks underwater for months.
The Missouri River Boat Club was one of the many places that were far from being high and dry, but a year after the water went down, business is back up.
You would have had to take a dive to reach many of the docks at the Missouri River Boat Club one year ago, because last summer many of them were underwater.
Now, the 'open' sign says it all, everything's remodeled after a whole lot of water.
"It was over this rail here," said Missouri River Boat Club Fleet Captain Dennis Butler. "Over this rail and that rail out there, to give you an idea."
Four months of standing water, four-and-a-half feet deep left behind a mess.
Boat club volunteers were cleaning up for months, but now you wouldn't even know it.
The boats and docks are back, and everything's up and running, most of it's brand new.
"The only thing that isn't new is the ceiling," said Butler. "We re-did the ceiling and we had to wipe down the two by fours, sterilize those, and put everything back together."
But as nice as things are now, all of the water is hard to forget.
Even though there's not much the boat club can do to stop it from ever happening again, there's always hope.
"The river would have to come up 25, 30 feet to get back where it was before," said Butler. "And the odds of that happening are very nil and none."
The Boat Club's annual poker run is August 11th, 2012.
You can register that morning from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM.
This year a portion of the proceeds will go toward the Sioux City Farmers Market.
