Hey there. Just a quick message out there to all of you readers.
The past couple of weeks have been quite tumultuous as far as weather has been concerned.
In my area, we’ve received more rain thus far in 2015 than Seattle or Portland has.
The drought here is practically erased. And that’s a good thing. But the flooding is continuing in other parts of the state.
On the 23rd of May, I had spent an absorbent amount of time hiding out in my bathroom as four different TORNADO WARNINGS was broadcast for my area. Each time a different storm came through, it was more intense and more powerful and dropping insane amounts of rain!
I expected with each storm that passed that the electricity would go out. But thankfully, that did not happen. What did happen was the horrible sights that everyone by now in the nation has seen on television….. the flooding.
Today I think that we’re starting a drier spell but still have about a 20% chance of rain. The rest of the week will see rain chances going higher than that. We may not be out of the woods with this yet. People are comparing it to the Memorial Day weekend floods of 1981. But we’ll see how it turns out.
So far now in 2015, there have been four confirmed that have lost their lives.
On the other hand, I happen to be situated on a hill. Flooding is always possible, but the rains will always rush downhill. So far, I have been fortunate not to have any specific damage. Although I cannot say the same for the others around here. It has been a terrible mess. Yet when you are dealing with the threat of tornadoes… that is very, very real. And cannot be handled lightly.
Of which I never do.
But for those of you who have been worried about it, I’m okay. I don’t have any property damage that I am aware of. And the rain, although wonderful for the drought that we’ve been through in the past four years or so, is beginning to turn into a drag.
Thank you for your concern and well wishes.
Soon, Dambreaker will be back and in top shape!!!
