So I get an email from our deputy in charge of Search and Rescue, with a heads up that it could be a very interesting week weather-wise:
…EXCESSIVE RAINFALL SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY COULD LEAD TO MAJOR FLOODING IN WESTERN WASHINGTON….A POTENT…VERY WET STORM SYSTEM WILL DUMP SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL ACROSS THE AREA STARTING TONIGHT…CONTINUING THROUGH MONDAY.RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 6 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS MUCH OF THE LOWLANDS BY TUESDAY EVENING. OVER 9 INCHES OF RAIN COULD FALL ONTHE SOUTHWEST FACING SLOPES OF THE OLYMPICS AND CASCADES. THIS AMOUNT OF RAIN COULD PRODUCE RIVER…AS WELL AS…URBAN FLOODING.
And where will Greg be this week, dear reader? (Go on, guess…home protecting me and this beautiful boat of ours? Standing guard as docklines strain against the swift current, debris comes pouring down the swollen river, and the winds pound against Katherine Jane?)
Chicago, of course.
Given what happened last time he was gone, all I can say is “Stay tuned.”
