...So thank you so much to everyone who thought of us and have continued to check in with us all evening...if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have been ready for our "official" evacuation...
Side Note:: We usually have church tonight, but a nursing facility that was affected in the flood, moved in to our new church facility and has set up shop. My parents are there now setting up cots and giving the residents dinner...my mom called and said KOMO news 4 was just there...so check the 11 o'clock news tonight for Edgewood Bible Church!! (That's us!)
Confession time:: 1.) I still had to make myself look "pretty" before leaving which required a shower and a fresh coat of make-up (all of this while the firetrucks are driving up and down our street! *Disclaimer: I would not have been doing that if the mountain had errupted... 2.) I really wanted to document this with my new camera so I took all of these pictures for you (see below)......while driving.
*This is what we saw in the window when trying to get gas at Safeway
*Can you read the sign?
It says "Standing water? Wet crawlspace? Bad Drainage?"
(the sign was in a huge puddle of water. the irony)
*Check out the the truck in front of me...thats a lot of water*
*Water over roadway
*This is someones back yard*
*Anyone want to go swimming??*
