Hi Rich, You can send me a .ppt file at and I can link it for downloading for the Powerpoint Rangers among us. I may also be able to cut out the images and put them on a webpage, since MS applications can sometimes take up a lot of space, particularly if the images have been edited in any way after being dropped into programs like Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.

I know what you mean, Lee. That picture brings back many unpleasant memories of coming back to what was your home to find it gone or damaged beyond repair. I'm worried about Rich also... I hope that everything is OK. With the power out all over the place, I'm hoping that he just can't access his computer right now. I have a cousin in West Palm Beach, and they've had quite a time down there. Thanks for the picture, though. It helps me to appreciate what I have....

Someone sent me this picture today. Note there's a LongEZ with a yellow cover on it parked in the grass. The caption reads "The west end of the Bloomsburg Airport runway became an island yesterday in the flood-swollen waters of the Susquehanna River. Several planes and vehicles occupied the high spot yesterday as the owners waited for the high water to crest."

I first saw this photo about a week ago on the Internet, but had no idea it was from Bloomsburg. The color of the water looked familiar, much like my whole neighborhood looked in June, 1972. I guess the native Americans were knew what they were doing when they named it the 'Susquehanna', which means 'muddy river.' I hope that everyone is surviving the wet weather on the east coast. I've been keeping pretty busy out here in Colorado and have been to the west coast twice since our Seattle trip, once to Oregon and a trip to California. Both times the weather was nearly perfect, except a little turbulence enroute, and I was flying commercial.

I still see no response from Homer. I hope that doesn't mean that he's been flooded or suffered extensive hurricane damage in Florida. I can't believe they've been hit nearly every week or two with a new storm. I'm sure this must be some kind of record even for hurricane-prone Florida.

Hey Rich, how'd you make out with the recent bad weather? Hope everything and everyone is OK....
