A Wee Bit of Water

There is a song or saying that says "no man is an island." While that certainly may be true it doesn't mean that islands cannot be created.

In December, Washington received about 12-18 inches of snow in our neck of the works (around Seattle). Now the snow is melting and have created avalanches over the two major highways that run east to west. Plus we received the "Pineapple Express"...warm rainy weather from Hawaii which not only aided the avalanches but have also contributed to the rise of our rivers through buckets of rain (which the melting snow and avalanches are also helping with). Needless to say I-5, which runs north to south, is also closed to the north of us and to the south of us. We have become an island. The only way in or out is by boat or plane! :)

Thankfully the next few days are supposed to be clear skies and little rain...hopefully that will help the rivers to recede. So many unfortunately people have had to evacuate and are facing huge losses. It's been one thing after another here.
