Flood Update — and Gallery Test

We drove to town this after­noon to get the mail (Yeah, I know no way for us to get out = no way for the mail to get in.)

I got these shots of Cher­ry Val­ley and the Sno­qualmie Riv­er (from a mov­ing vehi­cle…)

Note that the lit­tle white peaks in the last pic­ture are the tops of a set of 6 indus­tri­al sized green­hous­es.

This is also a chance to try the Word­Press gallery plu­g­in that now comes with the vanil­la install. meh, not bad, but not great either.


This pho­to of Wood­inville-Duvall Road through the Sno­qualmie val­ley was sent to Jim by Jer­ry one of the fel­lows in SVARC. The “un-offi­cial” ver­sion is that it will take 4 days to fix. We sur­mise that it’s dam­age to the road sur­face and not to the under­ly­ing bridge struc­ture because the traf­fic cam­era showed an ambu­lance cross­ing ear­li­er this morn­ing.

W-D road rarely clos­es due to flood­ing. Now we’ll have to wait for 124th to open. Which could be days yet.

At 11:30(ish) this morn­ing the traf­fic cam­eras on 124th (south of town) showed:

from the roundabout facing west across the valley

124th from the 203 round­about fac­ing west

from west snoqualmie valley road facing east

124th from west sno­qualmie val­ley road fac­ing east

Live cam­era cov­er­age for the mor­bid­ly nat­ur­al dis­as­ter obcessed here:

Traf­fic cam­era of W-D Road here. (It’s off-line at the moment 11:22 am)

Traf­fic cam­era of 124th (our next best hope) here fac­ing east across the val­ley and here fac­ing west.
