Pineapple Express is the name of this weather system where wet pacific air gets sucked up and dumped on western washington for days on end. It's a bit more than normal this round and most of the area is in a state of emergency. More than 60 major highways are closed, ALL roads to eastern washington are closed.. it's craziness. at least it's 85 degrees warmer than fairbanks! the backyard, glad i don't have a basement.
why is the neighbor's yard perfectly dry and mine totally saturated?
the ditch on the edge of my yard. this morning there were pintails, mallards, and gulls <100 yards from my kitchen window.
my boss' mother-n-law took this photo off her front porch, just south of here.
