I had a couple of cats ask me where we were that we were getting flood waters. We live near Seattle on the Eastside. The Snoqualmie River that flows out of Snoqualmie pass flooded and flooded both Fall City and Snoqualmie (which is perhaps named after the river). It wasn't the most noticed flood around here. I think Mt. Vernon got more press but it's a big city and Fall City and Snoqualmie are pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
Momma says if anyone remembers Twin Peaks, they used the Snoqualmie Falls Lodge and the diner with the "Damn Fine Cuppa Coffee" is in North Bend, which is just east of Snoqualmie and about three blocks from her new office.
Her office didn't flood but Momma and her officemates were worried that they roads would be closed and they couldn't get there because they have to cross a river no matter which way they go. Today the roads were back to normal so Momma drove the back roads back to work and she didn't see too much damage but she was driving along the sort of highway (although it wasn't listed on the WAdot site so it's not a big highway). Also, lots of the damage was more on the inside to people's homes.
She said most of the cows (or moo moo's) were back in the pasture and that was good to see.
We live up on a plateau (whatever that is) and so our house wasn't in danger and there aren't any rivers around, just a lake, so that was also good. I guess lakes don't flood like rivers do. Portland flooded too and Momma isn't suprised because they get lots of floods with all the rivers there.
The rain that flooded us is now getting Patches and Mittens and Precious and Mistrie.
