So Much Rain...


Remember what I wrote last week: last day of frost with lots of rain in the forecast. And boy, was I right! We've had rain pretty much non-stop for days and days and yesterday it happened: our little town become an island in the Snoqualmie River Valley. This has only happened to us twice before (both in the first year we moved in), so this is quite exceptional. We were actually cut off from all the roads and so my lovely hubby got to spend a day at home, which was kind of nice actually. {smile}

The weather was super mild yesterday and completely dry for a change! (except for the enormous thunder & lightning storm that came through at 6:45 am) We had a lovely three and a half mile walk around the area and it felt almost spring-like...




This is the Tolt River. It didn't flood too badly...

This one of our main roads. You can see the water made it all the way to
where the truck is standing. This is about half a mile away from the actual river bed!

Tolt River again...

This morning some of the roads are starting to open up, but the one that we use most of the time probably won't open until late tomorrow or maybe even Saturday. No matter, as long as we can get out. Miss M. is flying back in from L.A. this weekend so we have to be able to reach the airport of course! 

I wanted to go out on my bicycle today to have a look at the north end of town, but guess what? It is raining again and it will do so for the next three days!!!

In other news: this weather is great for knitting!  {smile} I made quite good progress on that "Collision" hat I'm making for Mr. G. in fingering weight (Hazel Knits Entice)...

On the left: Tuesday, on the right: Wednesday.
The color on the right is a bit closer to the original...

And the Louvre sweater is coming along quite nicely as well! Sleeves are next...

Louvre... The filters I used on this picture gave the sweater 
some blue and brown spots which are not there in real life...

But what about my poncho project you ask???  I made it to the mid-way point (25 inches!), but I just couldn't see myself wearing the thing! Last weekend I decided to completely rip it back to the beginning! Yes, that was a very tough decision, but now I'm starting to look around what other pattern(s) might take my fancy. This is how far I got...

Still love the two yarns, but they will have to become something else...

And while I'm busy knitting I'm listening to the Pentatonix Christmas record: love it!!! (especially "Mary did you know")

  2. I see it is not only my part of the UK that has lots of rain. I have relatives in your part of the world so I know that our weather is fairly similar. It's the heavy grey skies that come with all the rain that make it so hard to put up with day after day. How your rain stops soon and you can get out to pick up your daughter.
