Crooked Thinking

A political blog that features posts on comic books, video games, books, and movies. This is also a personal blog. I usually follow back if we blog about similar things. Fair warning: I post quite a bit.

Hurricane Camille

In the mountain slopes between Charlottesville and Lynchburg, more than 26 inches (660 mm) of rain fell in 12 hours, but the worst was in Nelson County where 27 inches (690 mm) fell. There, rainfall was so heavy that reports were received of birds drowning in trees, cows floating down the Hatt Creek and of survivors having to cup hands around their mouth and nose in order to breathe through the deluge. Though the official rainfall was recorded as 27 inches, unofficial estimates are much greater. Some estimate that more than 40 inches of rain fell at Davis Creek. Most gauges were washed away; however, it was reported that an empty 55 gallon drum that was not even in the center of the heaviest rainfall had 31 inches of water in it after Camille passed. “So much rain fell in such a short time in Nelson County that, according to the National Weather Service at the time, it was ‘the probable maximum rainfall which meteorologists compute to be theoretically possible.’ “

The ensuing flash floods and mudslides killed 153 people. In Nelson County alone, 133 bridges washed out, while in some places entire communities were under water.

“I always remember what he taught me.  ‘The key to any endeavor in life is to be educated.’ I don’t mean education in terms of strictly university, or maybe it is for you, or drama school for me, which I did. I now know what he really meant. You want to open as many doors as possible. There are so many variables in life where things have to line up for things to happen. In all of that, your preparation is everything. Learn whatever you have to learn, train however you have to train, to get the best out of yourself. That, my friend, is the No. 1 ingredient.”
