Here’s the view of Wolf Creek from our back porch. About two feet of water in the yard.
I hope it stays in the yard and not in the house. Lake Olympia was been restored in Glennbrook, see Yubanet for details.
I was just down there and didn’t see much if any flooding. I looked on Yubanet and couldn’t find a thing about Brunswick. Maybe you could provide a link?
This is why we need the pesky government regulations the Tea Party and the right hate… like restrictions to NOT build in floods plains and a few feet from the ocean.
The hard right screams about government and regulations while taxpayers provide the a big chunk of their flood insurance and also pay for clean up and rebuilding… much less rescuing the folks that refuse to get out of the way of a major storm event.
See how fast the Tea Party and R electeds went to Washington for money to rebuild after Sandy and New Orleans? These folks want the “big government” they hate to pay to rebuild in the same place, where they will get wiped out again and agin by increased storms and increased damage and raising sea levels due to global warming… that they claim does not exist.
Want to build and live in a flood plain?… then pay for the repairs and interm housing… don’t ask the government (taxpayers) to pay for it.
Steve – Our family has lived on this floodplain for half a century. We can handle it. Haven’t needed a bailout (sic) yet. Like the Boy Scouts say: Be prepared.
Yeah those darn Tea Party people. They want Steve Enos to live in the floodplain, hell, they want him to live in the water! How ridiculous.
I guess mowing the lawn is out of the question. You and MA stay safe my friend.
But Crabby, isn’t flooding the way nature brings new mineral-rich nutrients to your garden? Of course you could just plant rice or cranberries. (I have this image of the rats in your basement floating around on the rat traps they manage to avoid the rest of the year. )
Great tomatoes next year!!
