Floods and Landslides

 Greetings!
I mentioned that we had a bad storm. Oh hell, all of our storms are bad. giggle Our fence broke and was fixed yesterday. I have the best landlord anyone could ask for.
As I said before we are luckier than some in this storm.
One of the posts broke, so a major fix.
I always wanted to see the growth behind the fence.
It's a mangled mess, but the workers went behind and 
cut it all back. Yay!
Now you just can't fix stupid.
This is Cushman. The place going out of my town.
It floods ALL THE TIME!
There is a sign that reads
Road Flooded Do Not Enter.
So lets drive your tiny car through it anyway.
Ohhh Engine wet... car dead. Time for a tow truck
 And probably a new engine.  Dumb ass!
A few mile past this flood was also a mudslide. 
So even if you get through the flood you couldn't get by the slide. No traveling east.
It seems that landslides mostly happen at night 
and this person was not so lucky.
This is actually a small slide. However, the tons
of mud, boulders and trees always break the roads.
Ahhhhh winter life on the Oregon coast.
So glad we don't have to go anywhere.
 
Have a great day.
Be Safe Out There and Wear A Mask

  2. What a mess! So glad you are ok. The fence did not look too bad, I have seen them blown away in one storm we had one year.

  3. I know what you mean, Nicole. Our street floods on one end. There are a number of signs warning motorists and ways to go around it, but does everyone pay attention? Of course not. The worst was when a school bus driver plowed ahead, got halfway and decided it was not a good choice so tried to back up. Instead the bus slid into a nearby fired destroying a farm sprinkler system. Thank goodness it was an empty bus.

  13. You have an awesome landlord. SO glad you can count on him. It may be because you are a good tenant, though.

    Yes, you can't fix stupid. Some people just refuse to accept road signs. I'm just delighted that you are safe and have no place pressing to go. Stay safe, dear.
