Shop With Me

Thursday, May 22, 2008


Well, the talk around here is about the weather. Again!! First we had all that snow and the mountains were covered. They were very pretty with all that white stuff up there. Now, with the high temperatures all that white stuff is leaving and all we have left is the water. Lots of water.

This is the most flooding we have had in a few years. The Coeur d'Alene River at Cataldo some 50 miles from me is flooding. We can't go to the Cataldo Mission today (Larry and Leann) the off ramp is covered with water and has been for several days. Roads have been closed, sandbags have been placed and people are on high alert. They are also being requested to boil their drinking water. Coeur d'Alene Lake is almost out of its bounds. The city beach and seawall are non existent. The RV Park on the Spokane River is under water. There will be no camping there this weekend (Fred and Jo you can relate to this). The price for their sites is too high anyway. Wolf Lodge Campground at the east end of the lake is underwater. No camping there either.

Spokane River here in Washington has flooded in some places and the pedestrian bridge near the Spokane Falls downtown is closed. The Governor has been here and declared a state of emergency. The Governor of Idaho came to see the flooding in North Idaho but was unable to fly over it due to the inclement weather. State of emergency there too.

Other than the weather there is not much to report. The grandkids are spending the holiday weekend camping with some of their friends. Here is a pic in their holiday shirts. Don't they look patriotic??

As usual, As my Father used to say, that's it for today.
