It snowed in Seattle on my 5th Halloween 38 years ago. Hasn't snowed on Halloween since.
The weather occasionally changes moods.
Keep procuring emergency goods in case you are isolated for long periods without contact. And be prepared to assist your neighbors.
Roads washing out are because roads aren't meant to last. Floods happen here too. Then we rebuild.
Stay safe and prepared.

Rez, the weather as of late has been really weird. You are getting the storms we use to get here in North Central Indiana years ago. Where i live now, I lived by Lake Michigan before, we would see weather alerts for where I am now. Not so much anymore.
I hope you and yours are safe from the floods. We got 10 inch of rain on the 4th of july about 14 years ago. It was flooded, but, there are small lakes and rivers that took most of it.
Its like the jet stream has moved north, although, it has supposedly moved south....Who knows.
As always, I wish you the best.

I feel and understand your pain. I hope that you are able to stay safe & dry through all of this. West Virginia is still trying to recover from our flooding. We had some areas that got over 10 inches of rain and lost over 20 lives

I have family in Texas that have been seeing a lot of this as well. Way more rain than usual; in an area where water rationing is the norm, they got well above even normal "good" levels. Flooding isn't uncommon in heavy rains, due to the bedrock being so close to the surface, but it's been a lot more rain this year. Where I am, not too bad so far, and hoping that lasts. Not in a place likely to flood, but plenty of places in town that I go for various reasons are low, which could be a problem.

Yes we got hit very hard here in West Virginia. So many people lost everything. My sons school was condemned. He has to go to school in portable modular units now. This was going to be his first year in middle school.

Thanks Lady. I've been watching Texas and have to agree, a lot of rain down there. I have a friend lives in Houston and she says the same thing.
