Flooding

It seems like we have been having crazy weather around here for the past month or so. Andrew and I are fine up here in Bellingham (our route doesn't consist of moving very far away from campus!), but I thought I would share a few pictures of what has been going on around my parents house.This first picture is right by their house. There is no river right here, just low lying farmland that flooded.
This is a picture of the Woodinville-Duvall Road. The water is gone but the roads are obviously damaged and are closed.
This is the sports field in the middle of their town. It's called McDonald Park and it is right by the Snoqualmie River.
These are a few pictures taken in the town of Carnation. The road flooded right in front of the middle school, which has never happened before. The middle school evacuated and sent the kids home at 10 am when the road started to flood. There is some minor road damage there.
This is a picture of the 124th bridge (the bridge that we cross to go to their house) and shows the road covered the day after, the water is going down still. It’s not a picture of the river (that is under the bridge) it’s a picture of the overflow in a pasture with the road. They still don't know what the road will look like!

I am reading to get back to the typical Northwest weather, no more extremes please!
