instead of doing a mass email to everyone with a general update, i thought this would be easier…. maybe. 😉
The weather has been very busy up here in the PNW. The dogs were excited about the 7″ of snow in the Snoqualmie Valley and truthfully so was I. I needed a vacation and didn’t realize it. The rain & warm weather storm we could have done without. This past morning around 2am, i realized that the river forecasts were not keeping up with the actual readings on FloodZilla. If we didn’t get out it would be a repeat of Nov 2006. Not something i’d like to do again.
In the Nov 2006 flood Simon and I were trapped on the property for almost a week and in the house for 3 days. No grass for poor Si, surrounded by water and curiously enough… with electricity & cable.
The view from my place in the loft apartment to my landlady’s house in 2006:
Ew, i know. It was really scary too. That stair you see there is the top of 5 stairs.
Anyway, what we have now is probably going to look a lot like this. This year i decided with 2 dogs and a job that would like me to at least show up… I should leave.
I did however find some UTube stuff from around the state.
This is a nice concise video from Whatcom County (North of us):
And from Centralia area (south of us):
This is Snoqualmie Falls at Flood Stage (about 5 miles upstream from me):
And Oregon isn’t much better:
On the up side, Si and Molly have been real troopers. Si’s been on his best bigdog behavior and while I know that Molly is stressed she’s not being really obvious about it.
