My town in 1977

The sky grew dark and it started to rain. I never saw a black sky like that night. It rained all day and all night until this happened. In the morning, the entire town was covered with a blanket of fog and when it lifted, this is what we all saw.

This town floods on an average of every 40 years. So we're about due again. It was bad that night. My wife was pregnant, due in September, but because of the combination of the wild storm, the flooding, her grandparents moving in with us, etc. she went into labor 6 weeks early. Only people who have been through one can understand the sounds, the smells, the fear and panic, just the whole experience of flooding. It's not just water. There's so much crap in the water. And it's powerful. It took out bridges and highways, homes and many, many lives.

 

Just found the vid and wanted to share.
