Now the floods...

As my mum used to say, if it's not one thing then it's another. And be careful what you pray for!

At last the weather has warmed up here in Ferndale and the snow has left us, but torrential rains in the last day or so with more on the way have created huge runoffs in the local rivers and flood warnings have been posted for the next few days.

This morning the local radio station was noting that some streets in Bellingham have been closed due to as much as three feet of water in the streets and this is before the full impact of the floods has occurred. Luckily we live on one the hilltops above Ferndale, but by Friday the usual roads to the freeway may be under water and we will have to find another way to be out and about.

For moment, dry and warm in Ferndale...hoping this is true for those reading this post.
