Interesting article this it inspires one.
At least mine made the front page first...
I see from the info page that SW ohio is on it's way.
Why does all this sound so familiar?
Sounds familar does it? Why?
Perhaps you just dreamed it you dreamy thing.
That puts you on 91
Blame Mina for the inspiration for this one...
I see and then there were two.

Yes, I'm writing it. I have to do it, I've been pondering it ever since I noticed both of yours on the coming up page, and Jimi's reminded me.
My family and friends have stories to tell
about the 1972 flood of the Susquehanna
River. My great uncle was living in Forty-Fort,
a town south of Wilkes-Barre. The water rose
halfway up the wall of his living room. The
damage was so severe that he simply abandoned
everything and moved back to Massachusetts,
where he died 5 years later.
My parents drove down to Pennsylvania to help
the uncle salvage what he could. There were
some unreal scenes in that area. Floodwaters
would bubble up through graveyards, and when the
waters receded, there would sometimes be coffins
nestling in the limbs of trees. A few were half-open.
A friend of mine (who also moved from Pennsylvania
to Massachusetts after the flood) says that her
brother's grave was washed away by the river.
I hope the above doesn't seem too morbid. Floods
can cause huge dislocations. Central Pennsylvania
has a number of coal mines new and old, which give
floodwaters some interesting places to percolate through.
Where they come back up to the surface can be unpredictable.
Kept them one day apart did the towers then Jimi
My father (a state trooper) was sent up there to help with the clean-up efforts and has similar horrible stories.
My family lived in Steelton during the Flood of 72 and I can vividly remember sitting on the roof of a one-story liquor store on the main street and having the water be about a foot below me. (the store had parking on its roof and that's how we got up there)
Also, my birth certificate was in a bank vault downtown and the floodwaters filled the vault. It looks like parchment now from the water damage - which gets interesting looks when I'm asked to present my birth certificate (a piece of paper that looks 200-years old but is really only 35 ).
What else could they do? It's rare for the imitation to surpass the original.
True but just occasionally it happens. Eh?
Well ahving done an article on the Best Way to Become PResident of the USA I thought it needed to be imitated in the Best Way to leave a lasting impression.
I think the worst way to become President
was the one we were subjected to last yime
