I'm still here!!

What a whirlwind this year is starting out to be. I've been a touch distracted from writing and my whole imaginary world! Reality had to make me check in and pay attention. I'm sure you have all heard of the Pacific Northwest flooding going on. Well, I am right in the middle of that mess!
This photo is a barn that is fairly close to my house! I pass it when we visit my brother and I think it is a bit disturbing. They were at 41 feet above flood stage, I believe. Kinda scary!
Lucky for us, we live on a hill, but the Stillaguamish and little creeks surround that hill at the bottom, so we just stayed home for those couple of days. Went out on Friday, late afternoon and though there was still LOTS of standing water, the roads were clear.
If you are interested in seeing any other footage of the flooding that was very wide spread, here is a great link to our Seattle news stations!

In other life events...
My Father In Law had to have an emergent double bypass this last Wednesday. They caught it just in time and he didn't have a heart attack. He is getting back to his feisty, cantankerous self. Of course this is why I love him to death too! lol So, sometime this next week, he will get to come home! :) Yea!!

Well, I am going to get busy on some writing today. I am looking forward to the escape, immensely!!

Have a great Sunday!!

Wow, you are having a time of it. I hope things get back to normal very soon and the flood waters disappear. Best wishes for your FIL's rapid recovery.
