In Seattle today we passed the record for the wettest November on record. Just shy of 12 inches now-and we are only half way through the month. At this rate we just may beat the December 1933 record of 15.33 inches for our wettest month ever!
It has been crazy here. The flood damage to roads and trails has been catastrophic. My job as a guide book writer has just gotten more difficult. Thanks Mother Nature! The pictures above (shot in a normal winter at Leadbetter Point State Park on the Long Beach Peninsula) may just be representative of what NW hikers have to look forward to in the next few months. Perhaps a trip to the American Southwest may be in order for a few of you out there. Stay Dry!
