Actually it is abnormal... just stay home and enjoy your swim... im sure the coast guard will come rescue you off your roof... don't take this for granted or brush this off as typical washington weather or PNW weather wherever you are... we will see record flooding the likes of which we have not seen in 100 years

Re: ARKstorm Hitting PNW.....now...More To Come
I have lived in Northwestern Montana my whole life. This is not uncommon. Many times there are strong low pressure systems that get stuck in the Gulf of Alaska and just churn out moisture. It usually draws warmer air from the pacific, thus creating what we call the Pineapple Express. It will do this for up to 2 weeks before the low pressure either dips south or moves into Canada. When it gets fun for us here in Montana is when an artic cold front dips south from Alberta and mixed with the moisture! SNOW!

While weather like this has happened historically, it is abnormal (as in not normal) for us to have such a strong storm in November.

Of course as I write this, A RIVER IS RUNNING THROUGH MY FARM!!! Any person who feels like sending a prayer my way, to keep my crops from washing away, I would appreciate. I'd really like to be picking strawberries and raspberries next summer.cowhayseedcow

Now the USGS is spewing propaganda. There's a reason the old-timers called it a "100-year flood", not a fucking "4.5 year flood". Now we're seeing new cloud types, new weather patterns, superstorms, record earthquake activity, all kinds of unnatural "natural" phenomena.


Popular Myths about Flooding in Western Washington
[link to pubs.usgs.gov]

MYTH: A “100-year” flood only happens once every 100 years on average somewhere in western Washington.

FACT: A “100-year” flood happens about once every 4 ½ years on at least one western Washington river draining to Puget Sound. bsflag

MYTH: Flooding occurs randomly in time and location across western Washington.

FACT: Floods cluster in time and location.

MYTH: Rain-on-snow and wet soils are required to cause severe flooding.

FACT: Rainfall INTENSITY and DURATION are responsible for ALL major floods in western Washington regardless of conditions prior to the event.

Northern Portland metro area here...

Had heavy rain for the past two days. Wind was high at times but I've seen worse. No power out or downed trees.

Now that the front has passed, here come the individual cumulus clouds in the cold air mass. This morning one cell passed through with east coat type rain. Right now, the sun is out right now with a light breeze. About 50 degrees.

Overall, not bad here.

Get gas cans!

Around here you could buy gas, you could even buy a gasoline generator, but you could not buy gas cans, for about a week after Sandy.

Best of luck ... hf ... Sandy was not too bad for most of us because there was very little rain, less than an inch. The only flooding occurred along the coast. It sounds like this new storm is going to flood large areas.

For those who are young, storms really show the forces of nature. They are magnificent, beautiful and terrible. These forces are much larger than you, or anyone, can withstand. If you are told to evacuate, do it.
