Sunny Weekend

Astoria, Oregon ~ October 6, 2013

It's super nice out today after last weekend when we were doused with an epic rainstorm, where we got 9.7 inches in three days (or 10.1; see below). Here on the river it didn't seem much different from any other heavy rain. It poured at times, but not all the time, and the River Walk didn't seem any soggier than usual. At least not where I was. We did have some thunder, which is unusual. One loud burst came within a mile. I love storms. 

Here is the scoop: "Astoria recorded 10.1 inches during the same period, the most since records were started in 1890 and a drastic increase from the city's 'climatological normal' of 2.14 inches for the month of September, according to the weather service."

You really have a lovely view from your place on the river, Sheryl. Hope the sun stayed with you last week, and if not in the sky, at least in your heart. xx

Hi Sheryl! Sorry I missed's a beautiful sight! Hope you are doing well. That's quite a storm. We'd float away with that much rain! But it would give ammunition to those who claim I'm all wet! :))

A great view and a great photo of it! That orange is as orange as orange can be! Rescued Tapir alert!
