we be wet


Yep, we are having some flooding issues here in the Pacific NW. Our house is ok (it sits fairly high on our lot), but the golf course adjacent to our backyard is flooded. As I proudly mentioned to Dust Bunny (who resides on a hill in town), we now have lakefront property.

The streets near our house are also flooded. The picture below was taken just at the end of our block. (I'm not sure who took the picture -- it was posted on the website of our local newspaper.)

It can stop raining now. Really.

Are you going to work, or are you phoning it in?

And the offer still stands....haul butt up to our house on the hill if the waters keep risin'.

Wishing you the best of luck that the waters subside soon.

My father's people are from PNW. They would always say that there are only two seasons up there. The rainy season and the 4th of July.....

Presbygal, Actually it almost always seems to rain here on the 4th of July! :)
