Here comes the rain.......

Oregon is known for a lot of things and one of those things is the RAIN.  Blah!  But even with all the rain we get this time of year, it makes for greener grass in the spring and summer.  This past week, two days before Thanksgiving, we got a pretty good down pour.  A lot of the streets here were flooded and most of the city drains were over-capacity due to all the water.  And if it wasn't the rain making it a messy day, it was the wind too.  









During the rain down pour we got a mix of sleet.  It was a mess!








Our summer hiking trail under lots and lots of water.



The rivers were swelled up pretty high.  We had plans to go out to eat, but we decided to stay in where it's nice and warm and order a pizza instead.

 




Eco-Tip:  Using reclaimed wood to make something new for your home is a great way to repurpose.  Here is a cool project to try, Farmhouse Table.
