You and Mom Vinson can have ours!  If it doesn't stop soon we are 
going to be cut off from the rest of the world again.  Here in 
Lewiston there's a hillside giving way -- moving a foot an hour or so 
-- that has the Elks Lodge on top.  I don't particularly care about 
the Elks Lodge but the slide is already blocking a highway.  In fact, 
in every direction out of Lewiston there is tremendous slide danger.  
It's been raining here for days -- we had 1/2 a day yesterday without 
rain and kept wondering what was wrong.

We in Lewiston are in better shape than a lot of places in the state. 
Last year Idaho had a very large number of slides -- some villages 
were cut off from the world for a couple of weeks -- that cost a heck 
of a lot of money to repair.  I figure if this rain doesn't start 
soon we'll be looking at a tax increase just to repair that 
north-south wagon track they call a highway -- the only highway 
linking north and south Idaho.
