    Harrowing tale of survival when Salinas was getting washed away

    I bet a lot of you know this guy, Steve , from when he was manager of the Boulder Performance. He may still be, I dunno, haven't been there in awhile. You think you have a flood story? Watch this video interview with him and his wife:

    I do know Steve- great guy. I had read the story but didn't realize it was him as I didn't know his last name. But he was always friendly when I went into perf.

    I hadn't seen him for a long while. He looked so familiar, I was wracking my brain "who is that guy?" I bought parts from that store and talked with him for many years. Knowing he and his wife are "one of us" it's instructive to hear how in the midst of chaos they managed to get out alive. Pretty much thinking fast and doing what they had to do in the moment.
