Ivan hit last year after an extremely wet summer-- actually an extremely wet 2 years, so the rivers and water tables were pretty high before the storm. There really was nowhere for the rain from that storm to go. We just got 2-3 inches from the remains of Cindy, and there didn't seem to be much ruckus over that. The streams are already down pretty far again.
I've always been a coaster lover but recently found the Florida Coaster Club at the fair and we signed up that night. That's what led me to this sight and I never thought I would see Bushkill Park mentioned.
Bushkill was great for a kid in the 60's. The Pretzle House, the Whip and grabbing 1, 2, 3 rings if you were good, on the Merry-Go-Round, (I was too young then to call it a carousel), looking in those funny mirrors before sliding down the big wooden slide on your way to the Barl-O-Fun! Was it just me or did the Clown in the front window creep you out too? I swear it looked at me!
I grew up about 3 or so miles from Bushkill in Forks Township. I spent many weekend days there in the summer. Had a birthday skating party in the rink. Watched my Grandfather pull in the winning fish in the annual Mothers Day fishing tournament, only to be on another kids line! I'd still give anything to have just one more day with him in the park.
Thanks for letting me ramble! See you in line for the Wild Mouse!!
