If and when I ever move...
...offered by Dn. James Ferrenberg, a sinner at 12:49 PM [+]
...it will be to some place where our current weather pattern is not duplicated. Today it is more than 20 degrees warmer, raining profusely, and the wind is blowing down trees. Water and flooding is everywhere...it is the worse possible timing: a heap of snow one day and then a "pineapple express" storm the next. This really could get bad.
While I am sitting at my desk eating lunch in a nice warm and dry lab office, my poor homesteading wife is out digging additional trenches, rerouting drain pipes, and dumping rain barrels and getting soaked for the trouble.
Uber-saturated ground gives me the jitters...not only could we see a septic system unable to drain, but we could also see a landslide.
So, prayers please for all of us in western Washington. Oh Lord, send the rain to our brethren in Cyprus!
Addendum: Just received news that our barn is flooding. Furthermore our neighbor's front yard has become a lake. Hoping I can get home okay.
Addendum 2: Kitsap county has declared a state of emergency, "local resources are overwhelmed to deal with the problems." Highway 3 has been shut down effectively isolating the north part of the peninsula from the south.
Addendum 3: Next up, WIND! Another wild ride home...stay up trees, please.
Yes, there is an amazing amount of wind and rain here too.
Stay safe, you will be in my prayers.
