The whole of western Washington is being deluged with heavy rains. Rivers and creeks are flooding, people are being evacuated from their homes. It's just a nightmare ! I'm so glad I live in a spot where I don't have to worry about floating away.
It took until yesterday to recover the car that went off the road last Friday morning into the Green River near Auburn. A 16 year old girl was driving two family members ~ a 2 yr old to day care and a 13 yr old to school for her aunt, who had just had surgery. The 16 yr old driver managed to escape the submerging car but the other two didn't. The river is running so swift and deep that rescue/recovery efforts were hampered. The little one was still in the car but the other teenage was not. With this heavy rain continuing it may be awhile before they are able to recover his body. Such a horrible ordeal for all concerned.
I had a dentist appointment this afternoon. Just a cleaning and x-rays. I'm happy to say that Linda is a good girl and brushes & flosses like a fool so there are no new cavities. YEAH !!!!!!!!!!! My one bad habit & hard on teeth~drinking an occasional soda, once again hasn't done any damage.
I posted another entry on my travel Blog today. It took forever! I even left in the middle of it & went to the dentist. I sat there in the chair thinking how upset I was going to be if the thing timed me out & disappeared. So I was happy to see it was still there, partially finished when I arrived home. It seems to take forever to get pictures loaded and into the right spot on your entry. I don't think it was like that in our "other life" (AOL journals)
Well, that's all for now...I'm off to fix some dinner. Linda
