I don't know if you have seen it on the news in your area, but we are experiencing excessive amounts of rain. The rain is melting the huge piles of snow we received over the past few weeks. Western Washington is wet...soaked like a soggy sponge that cannot take in anymore moisture.
Hubby and I are fine in our home. We have a nice, new storm drain right in front of our house and we live uphill from our local lake. The lake is about two blocks away. The other towns in our area are not as lucky. The rivers are at or above their flood levels. The main north - south highway, Interstate 5, is closed for a twenty mile stretch about 30 miles south of us. Roads are closed all over the place as the creeks and rivers rise.
It's a real mess out there!
Please keep the wet Washingtonians in your thoughts.
In other news...well, not really news, just my daily trivia. I am starting to close loans again! The interest rates are really low, if you have been thinking about refinancing and have some equity in your home, now is a great time to take that jump. Interest rates are around 5 to 5.50%. That's pretty good! It's even making me consider refinancing, and I really hate doing my own loan! I realize that sounds silly, but we really had a tough time when we bought our current home and the scars remain.
Thank you all for the nice comments about the flying pug photo! :o) Charlie looks so funny in that photo, I love how her eyes are so wide open and her little ears are back, she looks so focused! Her grandma is signing her up for more agility trials at the end of the month. These are for fancy, registered AKC doggies. Grandma is trying to make a champion out of little Chucky...but Chucky is an obstinate little beasty.
I hope you are all well and happy. Thanks for being my internet pals!
