Kelly Miller Circus comes to Walton

A little bit of welcome color and distraction from the flood clean-up.

Elephant setting up the BigTop

Sunday, July 16, 2006


Walton is slowly putting itself back together. Still lots of mud to clean, equipment to repair and tools to replace at Tom's Tire Barn. At least another 2 weeks before we're fully functional.

But the important thing is that it looks like most all the merchants are rebuilding. It can be very discouraging at times but we've had lots of well-wishers and helping hands and friends offering moral support. It's helped tons. Thanks all.

P.S. The Delaware County Fairgrounds are looking really good. Next Sunday a circus is supposed to set up in the parking lot next to it. Hopefully (weather permitting) I'll get some photographs of them setting up the big top.

Dump Here

They may seem an unlikely cavalry, but NYC sanitation trucks have been working long shifts cleaning up the streets.
They dump all the debris along the Delaware River on Water Street.
And the stuff is removed by tractor trailer almost as fast as the sanitation trucks dump it.
Tons of hot-water heaters from basements.

Tom's Tire Barn

We have at last gotten cleaned up enough so that we are doing tires & oil changes again. Can't do inspections or mechanical work yet, hopefully that'll come by the end of next week. Still lots of clean up work to do, lots of inventory and tools to replace, but we're gaining.

The Walton Reporter

after hauling away twice this much debris already, the Reporter is still hauling stuff out into the parking lot.

I'd almost lost my faith in people in general when we discovered we'd been looted. But lots of kind words and helping hands over the last few days have restored my faith in humanity. There are a lot of good people out there. Thanks all. We're trying our best to re-open our doors by Friday. It'll be in a severely limited capacity, but hopefully we'll be able to at least repair tires.
