Bonus! I’m taking a quick break from the Japan posts and throwing an extra one out this week. This is to talk about something near and dear to every Northwesterner’s heart: rain.
The Pacific Northwest has been pummeled by record rainfall this week, creating rivers in the streets and flooding in parking lots. The storms have been quite hazardous, and I hope for everyone’s safety. We are fortunate to live on a hill (though not so much to be in danger of landslides), and I work close enough to walk, so I can avoid the resulting traffic nightmare.
