WW: Chehalis Valley flood

(This is Garrard Creek, a tributary of the Chehalis, about two weeks ago. The parallel lanes of trees normally line the tops of high banks on either side of the creek bed. Yet here they stand mid-stream in what has become a very wide, renegade river. One that closed most of the roads in this rural district for about a week, trapping some folks behind it and preventing others from lending them assistance.

  1. That happens here from time to time, depends on where the rain is

  2. A flood is a scary sight ... hope people are okay (and dry!)

  3. Water is very powerful, it's amazing what it can do to nature and to us.
