When I first got there, I knew 'this doesn't look good!'
Stage Right, Steve Howe's menagerie of guitars before the storm.
Backstage before the storm.
Mike Clarke doing a linecheck before the storm.
The water is rushing in ... and the crew is trying to rescue 240 V.
The water's getting deeper.
The last photo of me before I got off the keyboard riser.
The last photo of the then-current Oliver Wakeman rig.
I took this photo of the Frampton drums just minutes before the storm hit.
After I started running, I stopped halfway and took this photo looking back...
Running fast to the casino, my finger accidentally snapped this photo .....
....and this one......
......and this one as I got closer to the casino sidewalk ......
This is the spot I was in when the storm hit, and the Frampton rack miraculously held up the speaker stack.
Emergency vehicles start rolling in.
More emergency vehicles.
Thanking our 'lucky stars' that we were ok. I'm wearing the Lucky Star Casino shirt they gave me.
The tent had been covering the bus, and had to be cut so we could get inside.
They had to bring in a crane and forklift to safely move the stacks that had been hanging over my head.
My safe haven. I had been on the ground right on the other side of the sandbags with my arms over my head.

Steve Howe's schedule didn't say anything about a storm....
I am weary, but amazed at how much effort it took to move my safe corner. I still can't believe I was right under that stack and wasn't killed.
My tire which blew out on the way home. The tire man thought it must have been hit with debris and weakened it.
David Mark Pearce helped me through the entire time on the phone and with texts. He suggested I deserved some ice cream. So this is what I got. lol
And to go with the ice cream, hey - a movie .....
