ED. Another post from my Father.

SUBJ: OUTSTANDING TOP TO BOTTOM FLOOD CONTROL WORK DURING EMERGENCIES
Chris: You may remember that I have, in the past, sometimes been critical of the Department of Public Works. Not this time!
I want to commend the administration for the attention they have given to this at risk area. I know that there are other ares of the County that are as devastated as is La Canada, and I find it remarkable that your department has been able to protect all of them from the recent three-day storm as well as you have.
As much as we are grateful to the administration, we are equally indebted to the dedicated workers who risked their lives to alleviate the flood danger. They labored mightily to unplug the drain from the unexpected, intense November rain storm, and they were there in the latest freezing cold and pouring down rain, checking our Catch Basin and drain almost every one-half hour. I am certain that our home was spared primarily because of their valiant efforts.
Thank you, and thanks to them. We are eternally grateful.
Bill and Robin Gehr
