Nolan Surles writes "We did really well here but other places in town and all around us all over the area were hit really terribly hard.  We were without electricity for 15 days almost exactly.  I think the worst thing about the storm is that it hit at night.  The others we have weathered were during the day and at least we could see what was going on."

Cyndi Lee Flugum's '63 Web Site
- New Address as of September 28,  2008.  Cyndi says "Decided to turn it into a blog for now, while I restructure the website.  Too many problems with the old site, which was sold to another company, changed servers and was down for 9 days, raised the prices, couldn't retrieve my account or upload, then said they no longer owned the domain name registration--sounds like an investment bank, doesn't it?"

I'm in the the strange position of being "there" (was at Radford the last 2 yrs. before graduating, graduated high up in the Class of 64), but I was so busy studying (and doing things to get into college), but not knowing anyone. I must have been a ghost, too, 'cause not too many people knew me."
