A little while ago, Tara commented to ask if it was flooding where I was and I replied, somewhat flippantly, that I was feeling miffed because our cul-de-sac had flooded and storm water had backed into our dishwasher as a result.
That was before I really took a look at the extent of the flooding in Washington state. We haven't experienced anything near as bad in this neighborhood, and here I am complaining about a minor inconvenience to a labor-saving appliance. Oh yes, poor me, having to push a button twice and wash a load of dishes again, waah waah. Heh. Someone play me a violin solo, quick!
So, um, while it has rained quite a lot here, there have been some mudslides, some downed trees and a power outage at my honey's work today, we've had no major crises to speak of.
