July 31, 2012 – I started The View as the result of entering a Weather Blog Invitational encouraged by Courtenay of http://bluebirdblvd.net/ & Metan” of Buried Words and Bushwa, http://picsandstuff.wordpress.com/ The idea was for bloggers everywhere to submit a photo, written word, anything creative representative of what the weather was doing in their particular part of the world! The following is my submission.
I live in the the southeastern part of Washington state. Up until a few weeks ago we had really wet and weird weather. As a result the nearby Columbia River became engorged and overflowed into otherwise high and dry areas. The following photo is a few weeks old but illustrates pretty clearly the situation. The river is still high but it isn’t as bad as it was – Yes, that is me and the water is very very cold! Enjoy!
