Description

Gary describes the Flood as being a spiritual event. The evening of the Flood he was in his VW car with the turn signal blinking left to go to Charlie Browns in Baken Park. For some reason he turned off the signal and decided to try to make it home instead. Not five minutes after leaving that area, Charlie Browns was completely wiped out by the raging water taking 16 lives with the building.
