I think the creek is full



Our pastures are completely submerged and the water is flooding the neighbor's yard now, 5 more days of rain predicted- but China had fun!

Is this flooding unusually early, or is it expected every few years?

That is SO cute!

I was in Portland today on business and it was raining sideways.

We have terrible flooding out our way, too, in Seattle. But China takes the cake!

It is not expected that "Little Creek" would overflow.

I did see something humorous today on the way to the vet. There is a small golf course on the way, and the greens were flooded. There were two black german shepherd dogs playing in the water, finding golf balls that were submerged and flinging them to their master who was drying them with a towel and putting them away. The flooding in this area right now is quite unbelievable.

Wouldn't be suprised if the creek back in the ravine behind our house floods.. nasty rain.

Ooo! Looks like China has had some fun, but I hope the flooding lets up really soon!

MA, I just gotta say, China (despite the bird-catching and the floor-eating) looks like the happiest little bundle of delight! I just love seeing pictures of happy, carefree doggies and she just looks like she's got the best life in the world! I wish I could meet her, one day

You seen the Green River in Kent lately? Only 2 feet below the top of the dikes in places! The Ol' fishing Hole Park is totally under water! The Snohomish and the Stilly are pretty high too.

LOL! Jerry and Virgil used to do that, too, dunk themselves in their water, from a very early age.

They also used to try and rescue us whenever we went swimming. Couldn't stand us to be alone out there and used to swim out after us, whining, and then when they got to us would grab a wrist in their mouths and start to tow us back into shore. Sweet things. Except that they were huge and strong and you couldn't get away from them so you ended up with huge doggie scratch marks down your body. It got to a point where one of us would have to stay on the beach and keep them occupied while the other went swimming.

Silly doggies

It's still raining here. I was talking to a farmer today at the grocery store and he said his granddaughter asked him at breakfast "Gampa, can sheep swim?" He raises sheep, but has moved them to higher ground. It really is remarkable the amount of flooding here

If it keeps raining, I will trailer them up to a friend's house who lives on the hill behind us. But I suspect by tomorrow morning the water is going to be at the barn because it is raining so hard right now-

Yes, I live 5 mins from the Green River, but up on a plateau in the foothills, so we're all safe. It's really bad. Homes are starting to slide along the Cedar River where I ride my bike. But not as bad as the Wilamette valley where Hissy is!

Oh gosh that's awful!!!


Rain Rain GO AWAY!

Someone needs to do the rain dance backwards for yall or something!

I really feel for what you are going through, as we went through this ourselves not long ago. We had a very wet Fall in this area with widespread flooding. The rivers are still well above their normal levels and the high water tables are wreaking havoc with everyone's septic system (including my own). Every snow or rainstorm now brings flooding.

Is there any let up in sight for the rain?
