Thursday Thirteen #35 -- Flood Edition

Not much to say this week, so I thought I'd let these pictures speak for me. (With a little commentary -- I *am* a writer, after all.) All these photos were taken after the devastating flooding in the Pacific Northwest this week.

Closed and guarded freeway on-ramp.

This is the most air rescues the Coast Guard has performed since Hurricane Katrina.

A fountain that's normally dry in December.

Note the speed limit sign.

No fastpitch this week!

A familiar sight.

And another one.

I hope you and yours are safe, warm, and dry.

So very glad that you are warm and dry and not flooded. I was watching the news and thinking, OMG!! We got lots of snow this past weekend, but still, nothing like that.

The pictures are worth a thousand words...I've heard about the floods but these are the first pictures I've seen.

Thanks for the photos. I hope you're safe

Been hearing about this on the news and hope you and yours are dry, relatively. I like the video of the salmon swimming across a road - yup, I'd say that's flooded :-)

Wow, those are incredible. I hadn't realized there was flooding going on like that!
