Tropical Storm Ida

Yet another VDOT pic of TS Ida flooding.

As she's not a VDOT engineer and the businesses here likely wanted to keep the road frontage (and would still face occasional flooding), that was not to be . . .

This homebrew music video uses some stills from the Night Wanderer post and one of the razed Walnut Mall lot. And an unblogged photo of the Coliseum Mall demolition.
Plus Super-8 footage circa 1998 of the so-called ghost house in my old neck of the woods and other area bits & pieces.
Like Pons Store or the James River seen from Hog Island.
