Thursday night when Ashley & I were at Buttermilk Falls area near RT 92, we saw how bad it was. I thought Banks parents house might be in trouble. If you need something, let me know.

We got it bad up here too. I didn't have any damage, river did what it always does, nowhere near the house. But I have a lot of friends who lost everything, even the homes have been condemned. Give me a shout if you hear Bank's folks need anything, even like a gift card from UGM would be cool, maybe for Lowe's or whatever yous got down there that didn't wash away. We lost one Lowes and our Home Depot.

Were there any new blow outs due to the heavy rains? I remember some of those historic shots with rivers running down the street from formerly caped shafts...

Wow, you guys got nailed! Did you get anything in '06? We're seeing houses here that are not anywhere near a creek or river getting heavy water damage because the ground is so saturated and the rain has come down so hard that it's finding new paths down the hills. A lot of houses are getting it from water coming up through the floors of basements.
