Nearby Stilly Flood Waters ... NOT on our property.

We drove down the road a bit, just to see what was going on with the flooding, plus we could see flood waters from our house.  AND the Stillaguamish flood WATCH was changed to flood WARNING.  The picture above is looking west to Marine Drive.  The intersection of Norman Road and Marine Drive was closed off. 

The picture below was taken standing on the bridge just west of Miller Road.  Note the branch stuck in the gate. 
And, it rained all day today.  We did some weeding and worked on staying dry!  LOL  Happy weekend!
