Hopefully there is a plan to capture these things downstream

What a mess to clean up after all the houses, including mine, go under the bridge and over the dam. Too bad they couldnt have secured them to the bridge.

There was a plan to save the boathouses but the city wouldn't let us, even with professional equipment and trained/certified personnel. What a shame!!! You can see how many have been lost from the first pics to the latest ones.

What's the difference between a boathouse and a houseboat. Isn't a boathouse something you keeb a boat in and a houseboat is a floating house?

A Boathouse is a House or Cabin that is attatched to a slip in the harbor. It does not move from it's spot, except in floods as we now know..trying to keep up humor. A house boat can go out and move up or down the river or lake.

Judging from the nubmer of barrels I saw floating down the river I wonder how many Boat Houses sunk? Does anyone have a count on how many survived and how many sank. Last summer I counted about 95 houses in the harbor.
