For friends of Igloo Ed

Postby JDgreen » Thu Sep 19, 2013 7:09 pm

A fund has been set up for Igloo Ed and family whose residence in Lyons was severely damaged in recent flooding.

Hopefully this is the appropriate place for this.

Just bumping this important thread. Ed has always been a great guy to talk to around here, and it's sad to see that he's going through a pretty rough time thanks to these floods. If everyone can give a little, it will probably help a lot!

I wonder if he could use some manual labor around his place? I am tight on money, but got time to help him out. However, I think it should be an organized group effort to make some impact. Shoveling dirt could be an awesome workout :) , and if we go as a group we can also make it a great social event! What is better than helping out a fellow hiker? I believe it would be an awesome opportunity to show what a great community we have around here.

YOU BET!!!
Thanks for the brotherhood guys, it means a lot in these times.
I will go in tomorrow to work on my place. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I'll meet any wanting to help at the junction of Hwy 66 and 75th St. (goes through Hygeine) on the southwest corner of the intersection. We will leave for Lyons at 8:00 am.
Hopefully some of you have rubber boots. Everything that was in the water has a nasty film on it that gets under the fingernails real bad. Rubber gloves will be needed. Rubber work gloves even better.
Anyone with tools... Crowbar comes to mind. Hammer too.

Turns out that one person will be 15 minutes late so we will be leaving for Lyons at 8:15 today.
For those that can make it this weekend, we will leave at 8:00 both Sat and Sunday.
People have opened their hearts and I do appreciate that. I carried flood insurance since 1977 but couldn't afford it any more and didn't have it the last three summers. So, thank you all.

I am short on funds and have donated all I can afford over the past week, but would love to come help out for a day this weekend if there is room in the crew. PM if anyone wants to carpool. I'm in Niwot.

Cheers!

Hey Ed,
It seems that it probably have to be a Wed or Thursday. I gotta coordinate w Mike ( Kadow ) first and hope to see you again soon. Meanwhile lemme know if you have organized anything already for any Wed or Thursday, so I can join for a group that is helping you.

We will not be going out to work on it until this weekend but we will work both Sat. and Sunday.
We could use another wheelbarrow or two if any one can bring them.
Thank you all for the help, I can't do it alone.

Ed,

PM sent
What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - That's all I need the ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair and I don't need one other thing, except my dog.
[Shithead growls at him]
I don't need my dog.
