Not so bad…

Not so bad…

Today of all things, it is sunny, 56 degrees, and warm.  A beautiful day really – which is so different than yesterday. Most folks got out unscathed here at work save some falling limbs, cleaning up the yard from blown around debris, fixing an item or two blown down and shingles blown loose. The coast got the worst of it. But we’re looking at several good days of nice weather, and cleanup is already going faster because of that.

I-5 is still closed but the tree cutting along the major roadways is going well. As long as you aren’t trying to get to/from the coast you should do well.  The flooding will take longer to clean up, and it’s definitely not so pretty. Vernonia is just 10 miles from here and it’s swamped. A lot of the little streams are flooded, and have taken over some of the smaller towns in OR and WA. I recommend going to Katu news and checking out the video/picture clips for first-hand looks.

It’s weird to see places you just drove without a problem days before covered in water…

  1. I’ve been thinking that too – all the pics I am seeing, I just think, “wow, Chehalis looked different last weekend when I drove through!” The damage there is about 20 miles from Jonathan’s house, and it’s hard to believe it’s so close, so bad, yet nothing happened to his home!
