It was sunny today. SUNNY. For a good, 7 or 8 hours. It was amazing, it was divine, it was hard as hell to mow my one-month-and-growing grass. It took me an hour and a half to mow 1500 square feet. The grass was up to my knees. But it was sunny by george.

Someone should have knocked on wood.

It is now overcast again as it has been for months now. Apparently I live in Seattle and someone failed to tell me.

Here's some pics of the creeks that are now rivers. And some pics of the dams where the floodgates have been opened. Fortunately, I live on a hill and I work on a hill, so I have no problems...except with my grass.

good god.

i find it highly amusing that, judging from the number of people in that picture, this is apparently now a tourist attraction. have they set up a festival or something?

Ann said...

no festivals yet, but both mansfield and red bud are now tourist attractions, it's true. i guess this floodgates thing has never happened before or was so long ago no one remembers it.
