Ex-Californians lose all in move, trolls mock them

Chuck and Marjo Norlin packed up everything to move from Yuba City, Calif., to Hayden, only to see their furniture and nearly all of their household possessions destroyed during the journey north in an Oregon snowstorm. "Just about everything is just junk," Chuck Norlin said. "You just got to move on and complete our move and do what we came to do, and that's live in Idaho." On Tuesday, they sat in borrowed beach chairs in front of their fireplace, warm and dry inside their empty Hayden home off Lancaster Road. Two weeks after the crash of their moving truck, they are sleeping on a borrowed mattress, and the snow piling up outside serves as their refrigerator along with an ice chest/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.

  • And troll TWG chimes in: "Oh yawn........ the neverending deluge of californicators, slithering up here to change our demographics, spread their plague and pick our pockets."

DFO: I wonder what type of slithering, two-bit troll would kick a family when its down. Thoughts?
