The Flood of ’06! November 10, 2006

Filed under: The Gorge — elska @ 5:05 pm

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week, you probably are aware the Pacific Northwest has been in a severe flood state since rains and warm temperatures have taken over the region since about last Friday. Take a look at some of these pictures, taken from some friends off of Highway 35, by Mt. Hood, just 30 miles south of our house.

Why did the salmon cross the road?

Highway 35 on the way to Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows ski areas. This is the road!!

 The White River Bridge completely take over by the slide! This bridge usually has about a 20 foot clearance below it.

This is the Hood River, which may look like any other river, but it normally runs like a creek this high up the river.

    Which came first, the problem or the soltiuon? Luckily it doesn’t matter.

  3. B : c’est ce que j’appelais la servitude volontaire (en reprenant le titre du célèbre ouvrage de La Boétie), .On est encore libre de refuser certaines de ces technologies qui nous tracent, mais qui résiste à la possession d’un pass Navigo ou d’un téléphone portable (à part moi, je veux dire) ?

  4. There is nothing about this arena that is a good deal. The location is terrible, the financial plan is terrible, the benefit to the city is questionable at best. The whole plan needs to be scrapped and started again from step one.The first thing that needs to be considered is the location. Why build an arena in the middle of downtown when it could be built on the airport lands. It would have direct access to the Yellowhead, the LRT can easily be connected, and the road capacity would fit. Trying to put 30000-50000 people into the arena downtown will snarl traffic for hours.
