THE WIND!!! It blows....

Normally, I would complain about the wind. But not this time.

It's 50 degrees outside (at 6:25pm) and the wind is HOWLING!! It's suppose to blow all week.

That is a GOOD thing!! That means that HOPEFULLY the runs will dry out and my poor ponies will be able to walk in something other than slop.

I'm also hoping that we won't get more snow or rain. I'll take cold over wet any day!

I was just thinking that they all need trimmed. GAH!!! That's going to run me around $200 just to trim! Looks like it's time to get a rasp and work on them once a week to keep the length down. (Yeah right)

Oh Karen! I shouldn't tell you that they're calling for massive amounts of rain tomorrow. I think the weather man showed it covering your area of the map as well...

Wish us luck. We're on flood watch and about 200 yards from the Willamette River.

Hope you made it through the night ok! I'm praying for you!

We're ok. Husband looked up the flood info for our area. We're above the 100 year flood mark. Still only 200 yards from the Willamette, but we're up!

Not so great news elsewhere. Large chunks of the Portland Metro area are flooding, under flood watch, etc. This is after an earlier flood devastated parts of Oregon City and Lake Oswego. And they're calling for as much as 10" of rain in some areas today...

My back yard is spongy muck. Hasn't had a chance to dry out since the snow. It's a newer lot in a newer subdivision. Our driveway slopes and you'd think the yard would drain, but it doesn't. Dogs have to stay in as much as possible because of the yuck.

I'll take wind any day too! Let's dry out Oregon some!

I'm glad you're ok. There are many fellow barrels racers on the west side that aren't ok, and haven't been heard from. We're still waiting.

We're mostly dried out.
