Rain and Flooding

Heading into town today crossing the Skykomish river, I stopped and took a picture of it ready to crest and go over the banks.  This is the river we always cross as we're headed into town. Usually you can see the beautiful snow covered Cascade Mountains in the background.  Not today, it has been raining nonstop and last night it poured all night.  It's still raining now, and  they are predicting flooding of both rivers in Snohomish County.  So glad we live up high on a hill at 1200ft.  The Snohomish and Snoqualmie Valleys are rich and fertile because of all the flooding.  It doesn't happen every year, but I have seen it many times flood the valley.
