    To our West Coast BF'ers

    Hope everyone is safe and sound.
    I was watching the weather channel this morning, and holy moly, that looks nasty up in Oregon and Washington. The said one place had a wind gust of 129 mph! Cripes, that'll blow you around.

    According to weather.com for Bellevue, WA

    From S at 14 mph
    gusting to 21 mph

    Nothing to worry about here at the moment.

    Thanks though.

    How was the commute today?

    Picture from my commute home last night. While Bellevue and Redmond are mostly OK from the wind and flooding, Woodinville got slammed pretty hard.

    Here is a slideshow of the flooding in Vernonia, about 18 miles from where I live. The National Guard is there now.

    Didn't see anything like that over here. Of course....I'm all in the high ground area and you are down where our water washes to. What are you still doing down there anyway?

    Oh, Northwest. I was beginning to wonder if I'd ridden through a post-apocalyptic war zone and hadn't noticed.

    Instead, it's raining in the northwest? No way!

    It was a pic from my phone, and the rain on the lens blurred it all up.

    My friend Matt has another theory though, since I am part Sasquatch: What if Sasquatch is just... blurry?

    To those on the NW coast:

    I just wanted to say good luck and that my thoughts and good energies are going out to you.

    I didn't see this posted yet, so sorry if it's a repost.

    If your internet is down, I guess you're not reading this... Heh.

    Anywho, my thoughts are out to all of you.

    Flooding in the Northwest



    The interstate is closed between Portland and Seattle, I'm glad I live up away from the rivers and creeks.

    The coast has really been hammered, Bremerton Washington got 10.8 inches of rain.

    What's up on the NE coast? I must have missed it.

    Or did you mean the NW coast?

    It rains more in Houston too, but the highest rainfalls in the PNW aren't in the valleys or the cities, the highest rainfalls are in the coastal mountains and the western Cascades.

    Is there anyplace in Florida that can claim more than 180 inches of rain per year?

    So what is/was this all about?
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    Alas, smog is not seasonal... Except when it rains. You'll get afew exceptionally clear days after a good rainstorm. Then back to the brown/orange sky.
