Beating The Heat!!

Well, it has been awhile since I posted. I have lots of excuses but none of them sound good enough to post here. I will just use the excuse "I have been trying to beat the heat".

For the past week or so the temperatures all over the Pacific Northwest have been inunseasonably hot. Temperatures in the Portland area and in Seattle soared into the three digit numbers . A lot of weather records have been broken. The temperature in Spokane yesterday was 101 which tied the record.

A few days ago a mudslide on Highway SR 20, the Cascades Highway, dumped about 300 yards of mud and debris about 10 foot deep and closed that highway in both directions. It took highway crews all night and all day to remove it.

Now, before you tell me that way last winter I promised not to complain about the heat so no matter what I am not going to complain about it. I would rather try to beat it by staying out of it. After all, this photo reminds me of how very cold it was last winter.


That's it for today from the very Hot Pacific Northwest.
