In early December, torrential rains hit Washington, resulting in flooding in southern Washington, overflowing creeks and other waterways, and turning our Mount Vernon house into lakefront property. About half a mile from our house is the Skagit River. When it rained, the banks overflowed.
The picture below shows the house across the street from ours. While the land in front of the land is part of a wet land, it usually doesn’t turn into a lake. According to Rich, it took several days for the water to recede.
The other picture shows the pastures, which is about an eighth of a mile from our house. In the distance is a dairy farm.
