Got stuff? American Pickers returning to Missouri

America Pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are returning to Missouri to search attics, basements and barns for hidden treasures.
The hit show, airing on A&E has become hugely popular and now Mike and Frank are planning to pick the Show Me state again May 27 through June 9. 
Their favorites? Old toys; signage; motorcycles; gas pumps and automobile memorabilia. However, their broad knowledge of antiques has drawn them to make some unusual purchases, including collections of you-name-it. 
In some cases, an interesting story behind the item can help seal the deal too.      
Surely, there is something of interest to the dealing duo in our area... if you know someone who might have anything listed above or similar, please contact producers at or call 855-OLD-RUST. 
Note- they are looking for collections from private individuals only (no businesses).  

Rainfall Expected After Midnight

A beautiful day will give way to rain moving into the area well after midnight tonight which will continue through much of the day tomorrow. Areas along the Missouri River are expected to receive between 1/4" to 3/4". This precipitation in addition to the water reentering the Missouri River from the over-topped levees upstream will cause continued minor rises on the Missouri River across our area.
