Been fairly preoccupied the last couple weeks, for a number of reasons. Among them, the simple fact that when your neighborhood looks like a tornado came through it, blogging tends to get bumped down a notch or two on the priority list.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I posted about the record rainfall and a real snow storm here in Seattle, after which people told me that "the weather isn't usually this bad". Nevertheless, since then, we've had:
- Flash flooding that filled the Google parking garage with 3 feet of water
- "Once-in-a-hundred-year" wind storm, which flattened trees, deshingled roofs, and caused a state of emergency for all of Washington
- A million homes without power (48 hours for us, over a week for some people we know)
- Warnings about landslides
- Oh, and lots more rain
