In response to this week’s Community Storyboard writing prompt, Tomorrow, I wrote a short story that you can read here. In the story, the characters are imaginary, but the memories, the places, and the flood are real. The following pictures are of my childhood home which was damaged in the flood and is now condemned. Fortunately, my mother had moved out of the house a few years before and it was only being rented, or so I understand since it was deeded to a family member and I had nothing more to do with it once my mother left.
The following YouTube video will give you a good idea of the magnitude of the flood. The bridge featured in the video (which was being painted when the waters rose) was one that I traveled many times a day for many years.
