Yuba City Floods (1955) (Updated over a year ago)

The water was overtaking our house as we packed as much into our car as possible. Our parents plus us three kids, and our cat, Captain Midnight. The Christmas tree had been surrounded by presents and mom and dad said, no matter what, we were going to have our Christmas. So, they put as many presents as possible into the car.

One of us rolled down a window, and Captain Midnight (who was frightened about being in the car) jumped out. He was gone. I still miss him. He was so scared, as were we.

I don't remember where we went for shelter. Dad was in the Air Force, so I imagine we were more fortunate than others.
