I haven't blogged, yet about the 45th anniversary of the Tropical Storm Agnes flood.

There's a good reason why I've avoided the topic.  Everything that can be said has already been said.

Yes, there is still a need to inform those who weren't here at the time as to what went on, and that's the theme of today's blog.

I'm afraid we really haven't learned very much.  I do you know you couldn't abandon everything in the Susquehanna flood zone, but we've built up, again, in places that should be left alone.

The flood walls and levees are great, but all it takes is one weak spot, and it's Agnes all over again.

Let's remember all those who struggled in the days after the water went down.  Let's pray it never happens again.
