[or_liff] High Water In Silverton

2762.The downside to a Willamette Valley snowfall is that, more often than not, the very next thing is a warm mass of air, the freezing levels go up, and rain falls. What this means is that, after a strong snowfall which pretty much paralyzes the region, high water comes and does the same thing.

The Statesman-Journal has a bunch of pics of high water in my old home town, where they're evacuating the old Silver Gardens home on South James Street.

We just keep looking out at the river that flows in front of our Eugene home.

That's got to be nerve-wracking. I wish you all the good fortune in this time of high-water.
