These pictures are all in roughly the same area of our town. And it's no surprise that it has flooded there. We live in the 100 year flood plain. I think these pictures are in the 1 year flood plain. While it is no surprise that the area is under water, it is surprising just how much there is. The river crested *just* under the record. Barely.
These are on the south side of the highway. We live on the north side. While we didn't have any flood waters, we had a whole lot of ground water. With no where to go. The library and middle school parking lots were under water for a couple of days. The highway was shut down for sandbagging to save the businesses on the north side.
The thing is, pretty much all of Western Washington looked like this, or still does, or looks worse. We were fortunate.
We dodged the bullet this year. Thank you, Lord.
