    What Ed's house was in it when it got hit by the mudslide or it got hit whilst he wasn't in it? Are you suggesting that Ed may not be alright?

    Haven’t heard anything.

    I do have a friend in Woodinville (outside Seattle) and she sent me a news link a few days ago about the flooding in and around the surrounding neighborhoods. Some pretty nasty stuff.

    well I am not really sure to tell you the truth. The woman said that she heard them say Eddie's name on the news and showed his house and the backyard ravaged by the mud...so I am hoping that Eddie and Fam are all fine...but I cant find anything on the internet so I didnt know what to think really!

    Oh ok, I would say he's fine as surely it would mention something in the above link I posted.

    I'd almost bet they were referring to this news story:

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/Music/12/11/people.vanhalen.ap/index.html

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- It wasn't the homecoming Eddie Van Halen was hoping for.


    Eddie Van Halen flew back to Los Angeles, to find his yard flooded by a water main break.

    The 52-year-old guitarist had been in Edmonton, Alberta, where his band, Van Halen, had just performed, when a call came in early Monday morning from Los Angeles fire officials.

    A broken water main in Studio City sent thousands of gallons of water flowing down Coldwater Canyon Avenue and into Van Halen's yard.

    He arrived home from Canada around noon and surveyed the damage.

    "It could have been a lot worse," said Janie Liszewski, Van Halen's publicist and live-in girlfriend.

    "The pool is buried in mud, the driveway gate is down and some major landscaping is going to be needed to restore the yard to its former self," Liszewski said.

    Fire spokesman Cecil Manresa confirmed Van Halen's was the lone home affected by the water, and said sandbags placed around the house prevented any water from entering inside

    HAHAHA...not that its funny that he had a water main break or anything but hilarious to me that stories can get so misconstrued!! She was all excited to tell me information about Eddie Vedder that I didnt know yet...well apparently she misheard/misunderstood. I can be almost positive that she was definitley talking about this story!! Thank you for clarifying!!

    that is too funny, quite a coincidence too, since Seattle and some surrounding counties have got slammed over the last week or so

    those poor people, I was looking at the pictures on the website of a Seattle paper and it was just terrible. There was a large group of cows that drowned. That's so sad.

    Yeah ... Maui got it pretty bad. The worst hit of the Hawaiian islands.
    It was scary!
    At 1:30am we heard a huge bang (sounded like something came flying through our window.
    It was the neighbors HUGE tree that fell on our power line and ripped the electrical panel right off the outside wall.

    People were out of power for days. And now in some areas they are having to boil their water.

    Worst storm in 20 yrs.

    We didn't have any mudslides in West Seattle, as far as I know...

  • Yea the mud slides were wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy far away from West Seattle. I'm certain his home is just fine, as he is. :) i'm down on the beach and it was windy and rainy but that's about it.

    Wow I never knew there was a Vedder River and a Vedder Crossing - I thought this surname was really rare!

    I lived there from age 9 to about 6 months ago - my parents still do. It's a smaller part of a larger city. Vedder Road is a main artery and there's a slew of Vedder-named things here. I went to Vedder Elementary for 1 year and Vedder Junior Sec. (now Middle) School for another, there's a Vedder Village Mall, Vedder Laundromat, etc.

    There won't be any flooding in Vedder Crossing - it's not on the flood plain. The Vedder River may have flooded a bit further east, which is common, but the mudslides occurred on the other side of town. The river was down to a normal level last time I drove over it, which was Friday.

    My grandparents lived out that way many decades ago. I remember them always saying,
    "remember when we lived out by Vedder?" but that was also decades before Pearl Jam.

    When hubby and I went to the Gorge in 2006, we followed a truck all the way down and on it said, "Vedder Trucking"...

    I hope this doesn't cause everyone to flood all things Vedder asking for T-shirts and hats! ;)

    There is also a guy on the pit called "Vedder Crossing". That place is allegedly got some major serious mountain biking kick ass trails...

    Yep, lots of mountain biking to be done here. One of my co-workers is bugging me to come out with him and his daughters this spring - I just might.

    As for the t-shirts and hats ... jeez, hope not. :p Not sure where'd they'd get them from unless they make a pilgrimage and raid the local thrift stores for old school jerseys.
