Written Memory

Looking for my son who was working at Bonanza Steak House. When I was stopped by a volunteer who was standing in the middle of the road at Omaha and E North. He told me to get to high ground as a wall of water would arrive at the side in 10-15 minutes. I left. The next day I learned that the Ford dealership (Frontier) lost every car on its lot. That was the location where I had been. My Father had rented a car from Ford. It was their only car that was not lost in the flood.
