Flood history
Heartwarming, informative article

To the Editor:
Dan Bartelheimer wrote a great article regarding the 1975 flood (“They kept coming,” Dec. 16 Tribune).
I was unaware so many kind people came to the aid of the devastated farmers. It is heartwarming to learn even 40 years later.
Shortly before Highway 2 was closed, I drove from Monroe to Snohomish. The water was 3 to 4 inches high and you could barely see the yellow line. My friend following had a car with anti-pollution equipment which stalled the car on the highway. It was towed out by a county truck.
I’m sure everyone hopes we never see another flood like the one in 1975.
