Chesapeake and Ohio Canal--Video 1

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a soft spot for the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal.

Recently, we just avoided being flooded out by hours.

The C&O Canal Trust just posted 122 pictures of the flood damage done.  #41 is where our Scout van was parked, under about 4 feet of water.

You can even still ride a canal boat for part of it!
