FLOODING

Post by lowtide » September 14th, 2013, 7:19 am

After watching the videos of flooding in the Bolder area I can't help but wish Neal and all the other club members safety. I saw some of the destruction that flooding can cause in Vermont, It's devastating. TAKE CARE, Charlie (lowtide)

All:

On February 10, 1978, a few minutes after midnight, a river jumped its banks and surrounded my wife's and my home (a rental). We barely got out with our lives, pets and a pouch of important papers. The next morning, we came back to see the devastation. Most all of the home was completely gone. I had my 1931 Ford Model AA Stakebed completely disassembled. I lost the Ford-made bed that was in pristine condition and many small parts. Over the years, I aquired another good bed and replaced all the missing parts. Let me tell you, natural catastrophes are NO fun! We lost other more important items than AA parts. We lost family photos, Jr. & High School year books, family heirlooms, etc. But, the most important thing is we had our lives.

I'll keep Neil and his family in my thoughts.

Sincerely,
-- Drew
