I know I have been MIA for a while. The rain/snow has been insane here. My parents and us (100 miles apart) both were on the verge of evacuation. Them moreso than us (there was a random flash flood a little too close to their home). We are about 35 miles from that big dam in California. So we have both had a little too much excitement this month.

The snow pack in the mountains was almost non-existent, but there's been enough snow this winter that the snow pack is 200% of normal now. I saw that camp (already completely snowed under) was getting another 4 feet of snow this week? If we can even go to camp (late June) we might be bringing our sleds.

March will probably be tense.

I've also dug my way out of a (work) avalanche. Phew!! There's another one not far behind at all (and a few immediately after that one), but I am taking a day to just relax. Catch my breath.

    Nothing dire right now, but it likely won't be the last scare this season.

    Thinking of you, MM. Let us know if you start building an ark! That little edge of constant stress must be tiring.

    Glad you have a day off! Stay safe--that extra worry certainly doesn't help!

    I wondered where you were in relation to the dam. Are your parents closer? Stay safe!

  6. monkeymama Says:

    @ccfree - No, my parents are 100 miles further south of the dam. Had nothing to do with the dam. There is just too much water everywhere.

    Glad to hear you're ok, I was thinking of you and wondering if you were affected by the rain. Stay safe!

    I'd wondered how the rain was affecting you.
