Rapid Thaws & Flooding: Think Preparedness

A fair amount of snow has fallen around the country this Winter and in several instances is still coming down heavily today. Also, in some instances, there is a forecasted rapid warmup predicted for the next several days. That may well lead to runoff problems of large proportions, so if you would be influenced by such rapid runoffs prepare your strategy sooner than too late.

I write this common sense, “duh” post after watching some recent floods of a river close to my front door…not that close, but close enough to effect friends of ours. (2011 Sandy R. Flood)

Photography: High & Dry

This photo from a few weeks back of a shoreline drying up and cracking sharply contrasts with the relentless downpour over the last few days in the Pacific NW. As I listen to the drip, drip, drip of water from my leaf clogged gutters upon the  patio cover, I imagine these cracked surfaces are slowly adjusting, shifting from the deluges. Soon snow will cover the shoreline and then, later, the snow melts and runoff miles away will once again raise the water level well above this dry spot and repeat the cycle.
