1964

Ahh, the flood of '96.....we knocked off a couple of hours early and sent the entire crew of 150 down to public works to fill sand bags to protect Mt Vernon, WA.

In 1964 we were living on Evergreen Rd SW of Philomath when the BIG flood occured. From the hill at the E end of the road the valley looked like rice paddies with just the tops of the fences and the fencerows defining the fields all the way to Eugene. The light overcast sky was reflected in the silver fields like a giant triptiche'. I thought that was the coolest thing until we got old enough to realize the trouble that beauty represented.

Good to see people still out riding and enjoying that country. DD
