Sad picture from Texas

I was surfing through some pictures of the flood damage in the Marble Falls area, near Austin, Texas (my grandfather and several other family members live there), and could not believe my eyes!

It looks to be about a 310, and the floodwater may not have got too high on it, since the boat was not carried off. It is at a park and sale lot in Kingsland, Texas, about 12 miles from Marble Falls.

Very sad. Hopefully the owner had insurance. Salvage motor home, anyone?

I made a set of curtains for a couple in tx that had a 310, wonder if it was them? They are members of the forum but I havent seen them on in a while.

No, it wasn't us. By the way, we love our drapes Tammy! Our 310 diesel motorhome, "Seymour," is listed in the classifieds so that we can purchase a newer Airstream. When we get a new Airstream and if it needs drapes I will be calling you again.

The flood and rain damage in Texas is simply awful. With only 1/2 of the year gone we have already received double our average yearly rainfall where we live. So many others have received so much more. Everyone we know has family or friends who have been touched with this disaster. I went outside before daybreak this morning in the pouring rain and went inside our motorhome and found him to be safe and dry. I took a minute to sit down and say a prayer for everyone who hadn't been as fortunate as we have been and have lost everything they owned or sustained great losses. The picture you posted is just a sampling of the heartbreak so many have suffered.

And while Texas floods, Florida burns...
Cape Coral (our city) is currently experiencing the largest fire in its history, over 2000 acres burned so far. Luckily it is in a not too densely populated area. June is our wettest month historically, so far we have had an inch of rain. Normal by this time of June would be over 20 inches.
Send some rain our way, we need it!

Hi Jim and Marque, Im so glad to hear it wasnt you!! I do have another customer that had to evacuate because of the fires also. He said they were staying at a friends house in his A/S until they let them back in. They sure could use some of that rain and our prayers!! We dont have any fires here, but we need the rain also. Everyone's gardens are dying and that is all a lot of the farmers around here have.

We spent several months in Marble Falls the last two winters. It is sad to see all of the damage and devastation. Seems like weather is becoming more and more unpredictable these days.
