Some things are for very good reasons

While the initial reaction to hearing the kick-off to Matt’s ski program on Wednesday afternoons got canceled was one of disappointment, after we were emailed a link to the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Flickr Photostream we keenly understood why. So glad to not have to be up there today. This huge volume of rain atop the existing snow has begun to reek havoc. Good reason for the road to be closed and lessons to be canceled. Take a loot at these:

The major slide came down at Hyak, taking out what looks like several Chair Lift Towers. Interstate 90 has been closed the last few days and the volume of rain is causing flooding so bad it is deteriorating the roads. Crazy. So glad Matt wasn’t up there teaching today, and I am not looking forward to me teaching this Saturday if the weather doesn’t get cold enough to replenish some of the lost snowpack.
