I had no idea the weather was so bad out there as I have not caught the news in a while. There are highways under water etc...

I want to let all you Pacific NW people to know you are in our prayers. I hope everyone out there is doing ok despite the conditions.

My wife and I just visited Seattle at the end of October so it kind of really dragged us down to hear about this. After being to the city and surrounding areas and then hearing about something like this it tears me up.

    My sympathies also for anyone slogging it out in the hard hit areas. I was a little amazed watching the national news last night, though. They made it seem like most of Western WA was under 10 feet of water. Luckily, that's only true in a few spots. I'm just across the sound from Seattle, and it has been business as usual, no problems. Not much rain even.

  • I'm the wife BrainofRobbieJ speaks of...and I just wanted to add a post of my own to say that I hope all of you out there are doing ok...

    To read that parts of I-5 are completely underwater...and of the hikers who were killed in the avalanche on the Olympic Peninsula...just breaks my heart...

    ...xoxo...

  • we can all thank global warming for this happening more often. the first ten years i was here we had one rain storm, one wind storm and one snow storm that actually amounted to anything significant. last year alone we had three ice/snow storms, two wind storms and more rain in november than we should get all winter. urban flooding is a bigger problem because of development and it's not going to get better, it's going to get worse.

    the best thing everyone can do is give to the red cross to help people all over during natural disasters.

    I have lived in Seattle for 38 years.... and have never seen anything like this.....
    Everybody made a movie....
    Everybody had a one line.....

  • I live in the PNW. The water and the storm damage is really kind of spotty. I think it is the more rural low lying areas that are having a majority of problems. I'm not trying to downplay the seriousness of the problem in those areas. In those areas, its terrible. I mean, you can't go from Portland to Seattle (and vice/versa) on I-5 for another 24-36 hours. And even after the water goes down, they still need to be sure the freeway is not badly damaged. What a cluster that is.

    Here, in The 'Couve, on the day of the storm, I did see a port-o-potty tipped on its side. Ohhh! The chaos.
  • I just got back from a vacation to Seattle today. I was there from Saturday till today, and the rain/wind was incredible. I thought I was gonna have to build an arc. Anyway, aside from the terrible weather, this NYer thought Seattle was AMAZING!

    And then they also said about the snow blizzard on north-east :eek:
    What a crazy weather on both coasts! Hope everyone is doing ok.
    Take care, people.
