      Tried to venture out to the Mud today, but couldn't make it up there. Ended up at Skyline instead. Bob, let me know when you think I could get the Fukus up there, and we'll see what we can do about tractor chains. Though by the time I can get my car up there, I would figure the chains would be a non-issue.

        Supposed to be over three inches of rain tomorrow. That might melt off the driveways. Flooding will then be the issue. Once I can get out of here, Astoria may be out of reach anyway. Sure could use a town trip.

          Enough is enough of this weather. Pouring down rain last night causing flooding and now I wake up to snow in Milwaulie again. Not a lot of snow but snow none the less. I want to move to Arizona!

            I ain't sending your Sidewinders to Arizona.

            Snow again! Still can't get out of here. Maybe today I can get the driveways open. The sun is almost over the ridge. Sunshine: what a concept!

              Have been working days on snow removal but we're all still snowed in. The NFH (neighbor from hell) cleared her other drive but spun shit out of our new gravel job with her 4X4 Dodge crew-cab. The snow at the bottom steep part is still too high in the center and I'm still not sure I could get the tractor back up if I went down. It snowed about another inch today.

              There is a starving doe in my woodshed this evening. She got up when I went out for the day's wood but I started petting her head and talking to her and she lay back down. I don't know why the deer won't eat the hay I put out for them. I gave her a bowl of wheat berries, flax seed, oats, bird seed, and some carrots. She showed no interest in them. Her backbone and ribs are really sticking out. Times are tough for the deer and elk. All the deer are looking pretty bad. We really need a proper thaw.

                Another inch of snow last night.

                One of the doe's fawns joined it last night in the woodshed. Both were dead this morning. I think her other fawn was just under the storeroom. I tried to give it some asparagus stalks but it ran off when I tossed them under there. The elk are out looking for food in the daytime now.

                I finally got the driveway open enough for a chained up car to make it.

                Gimme that old global warming.

                  Awww, how sad about the deer!

                  Hang in there! Hope you get a good thaw soon.

                    Thanks. Pretty bummed. The weather warming up seems to stay a day away. Supposed to be snow showers again tonight. Having the deer on the course here is one of my favorite things.

                        These are today's and tomorrow's rainfall maps. They will update for a new today and tomorrow each day, but for now, it's what Tuesday and Wednesday are supposed to drip on us. My concern is that while "Above 3.00" is as high as they go, for Wednesday, I'm in the center of the hugest area of that that I can remember seeing. Still lots of snow in the highlands and the temperature is considerably up.


                        Looks like 'perfect storm' kind'a shit.

                              Well, today has not produced the numbers yet. The kinds of amounts they're talking about probably means we're cut off by high water and washouts. I posted that stuff more with the region in mind. The ten day forecast shows some light at the end of the tunnel. I'm ready for a break from weather hassles.

                                Road and power out for up to three days is estimate. Still have phone service, hence this update. They say the heaviest rain is still to come.
