Flood Cerlena Freelove-Otwell young use.jpg

This unidentified toddler was rescued during the October 1973 flood. Workers at OG&E, where she was taken, gave her a bath and wrapped her in sanitary rags because they had no clothes for a 2 year old. The rescuers apparently didn't catch the girl's name, and Lippard never got a chance to meet her mother. She was identified this week as Carlena Freelove-Otwell. (Courtesy Eugene "Vic" Lippard)

I prefer any season but Summer.
I don't have an opinion.
