Yikes, a Flood!

A winter flood not only mucks up our town's streets, but also makes a mess of the schoolhouse. Do you know what that means? No school for two whole months! Lucky me.

If you'd like to read the first chapter of Book 4, Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers, (coming this fall) go here: CHAPTER ONE.

Cory wades through the street to help an old man capture his firewood that's floating away.

Here are some of the levees the folks of Fresno constructed to keep the water away from the main part of town.

Yep! Floods like the one described in Chapter One really happened in Fresno.
