    Re: Abilene K5\'s Under Water?

    Sat morn is was raining straight down, and just to the south of Abilene in Tuscola, and Buffalo Gap they had 11" of rain, that all that run off heads north through Abilene. BY noon it was a nice day, and we were replaceing the rear springs on the Jimmy. At 3:00PM we got an evacuation notice for our neighborhood and were told to leave. My son and I said to hell with that and worked like an Indy pit crew to get the springs back on, and the all the tools cleaned up just in case. No way were we leaving the Jimmy sitting on jackstands and drive away from it and leave it to the mercy of flood waters. Fortunately, we were spared; however, my father-in-law got two feet in his house, he and his wife had to be evacuated by row boat at 1:00am. They live in a house that has never been flooded in 40 yrs. It is hard to imagine the devestation just two feet of water in a house can cause.

    One side note. Why does deep water bring out every fool that drives a rice grinder to see if he can drive through it?

    Cause they're like mesquitos.

    Has anyone heard if Clyde is alright? I have some freinds out that way and haven't been able to get ahold of them.
