First came the snow:
And here's Griffon!!
Then came the blizzard:
Then the snow got deeper:
And during all this we introduced our new 3 Cheeseburgers for $5:
Then the rains came (and where do you think all that snow went?):
Our walkway has seen better days at this point:
Road? What road?
Not even our 4 by 4 could get us out of this!
This is where we had to hike across to get to our vehicles parked in another neighbor's driveway (the fence blew down in the 100 MPH windstorm the day before the flood). The night of the floods, this was a raging river. LOL! Luckily since then, PSE and the county built us a bridge to get across our own driveway and through all the construction going on on our road:
This was our driveway the day after:

So, all in all, we feel pretty lucky that the flood didn't damage anything too badly where we're concerned. The roads are being fixed by the road crew and PSE is getting the gas line situation under control so we'll be able to have gas again. Our driveway will get repaired soon enough. I just feel so bad for the people who lost so much in the floods. If you do pray, please put them in your prayers. Thank you.
