It's Got To Go Somewhere

Mother Nature has Shown her teeth out here in the Pacific Northwest.  Heavy rain has bumped some area rivers well above flood stage.  A few homes along the Sandy River have picked up in search of some real estate closer to the Columbia.  The Clackamas remains above flood stage.  Here in Hood River, our river swelled up to above 13,000 cfs.  That's a pretty rigorous flow considering she likes to average around 1,200 cfs this time of year.  These videos were taken January 17th at a flow of 12,750 cfs.  While we were down there there was a utility truck that rolled down the tracks towards town.  They stopped at the bridge and thought better of the crossing.
