As some of you know, I live in a rain forest in the coastal mountain range of Oregon. My little town lies at the convergence of two rivers and we’ve had catastrophic floods in the past.
We just got 15″ of rain in the past 24 hours and the river finally crested 10′ above flood stage (according to one report). Parts of town are underwater. All roads out are closed due to flooding, landslides, and bridge erosion.
Our house is on a hillside, but our way out is blocked by water. We can hear the river raging in the distance. Our power is out and we’re on the generator. Plenty of food and water, and we heat with wood, so good there. We’re in better shape than some of our neighbors, and we’re thinking of them. This is a great community that’s come together before during worse times.
We don’t know how many days we’ll be stranded, so we’re charging batteries and conserving fuel. In other words, no big bouts of blogging. I will be transient at best in blogland for a few days.
The good news is I have lots of reading.
