All of the snow was meltin' and pouring into our rivers....the Allegheny and the Monongahela...where those two rivers meet makes the "Point"...there,they turn into the Ohio River. It made one huge flood. Our grandparents used to tell Mumsie about it....yes...1936 was before her time even though it seems like she's 105 yrs old.
That was before flood control. It was the worst natural disaster in the history of Western Pennsylvania. We hope it was the last!!
Doesn't our city look better today? People think Pittsburgh is ugly, sooty and dirty, but it's really quite beautiful! What a pawsome view of the city at night!!!
Have a great St. Patrick's Day...May the luck of the Irish be with you all!!!
