Not to make light of the mass amounts of water hitting this area right now, but a few quick thoughts. First and most importantly I hope everyone stays safe and loses stay to a minum. With the more local news I hear tonight, my parents house up on the hill, is looking better and better. For some outstanding pictures from in Sheridan and the much worse hit Redlodge area check www.sheridanmedia.com There is a great plug for were I currently work in one of the pictures, takin by a former boss, who happens to have the same great first name. The website is also were I learned that many local residents were evacuated to the K Mart parking lot earlier tonight. I feel for everyone that had to leave there homes, but some how can not picture K Mart as being a local safe house. While this is a ton of rain, for the Sheridan area, this is what one sees all winter in Washington and Oregon. I guess these states are just closer to the ocean for safer run off? I would again take the time to mention, the water is impossible to measure depth --even when flowing over roadways. And becomes extremely dangerous. As in ---even if you have a jacked up redneck pickup---stay sober if you are going to cross any flooded roadways, or expanded rivers. I can already picture reading about people trying to go through the drive up liquor store windows in blow up rafts and canoes if the rain keeps up. On a good note, as of 11:30 --the rain had given up for awhile. Hope it stays this way. Earlier in the day I got home just as it began dumping down rain. Lured outside by full on sun in the sky.
