Hard to believe. I can remember watching skid steers and loaders scraping up food in the parking lot of the Gardiner Shop n Save. There's a shot of it in this video. I know others here remember it, let's hear from you.

Oh yeah. I very well remember crossing the Androscoggin on the North Bridge with the water lapping the bridge, and the cops stopping us from going back over the bridge from Auburn back into Lewiston......as it had become too dangerous. They, and we, actually thought the bridge was going to be taken out.

We had to go back into Lewiston via the much higher Vietnam Veterans Memorial bridge upstream from there. I'd lived in the L/A area all my life and had never seen the river at that flood stage.

I remember stopping by the Edwards Mill in Augusta and seeing whitewater running through the yard between the buildings I used to work in. My wife's aunt watched her house go down the Kennebec in Winslow.
