You can't get there from here

January 9, 2009 10:14 AM PST

I have been trapped in my town due to flooding since Wednesday night. All roads and and out are flooded and although the river crested late yesterday, there is no schedule for when the roads will be cleared or opened. It could be a couple more days. This is the second major flood we have experienced in 2 months. This time the Snoqualmie river reached the highest on record, since 1932.

What you see in the picture is the main road I take across the valley to work. The rivers normal width can be seen in the width of the structure on the bridge and in outline of the row of trees snaking along.

One annoying side effect of having a flood disaster immediately following a snow disaster is that we have only had 1 garbage pickup since December 12.
