February 28, 1940, afternoon. Flood in Orland. "Our backyard. At noon the water covered the sidewalk and grass. Notice the orange tree (near the garage), king's fig tree (next to orange tree). Our almond tree (in foreground - it was in bloom before the wind blew last night), nippie's car, the flags along the sidewalk and the chrysanthemums in the garden. There is about six inches in the garage."
