Unbeleeeeeevably, the weather is against me again. Woke this morning to snow, slushy and already melting, not a big deal except for the fact that one must drive over the Coast Mountains to get to the beach, where the cozy writing retreat house is just sitting there, empty and waiting. And as if snow and ice on the mtn highway aren't bad enough, the coast rivers are all in flood. Hurray! What else could go wrong?
I've been glued to the ODOT (Oregon Dept of Trans) website all morning, watching with horrified fascination as road closures pop up as little mean red Xs. Mud slides. Crashes. Floods.
Egad. Can you beleeeeeeve it? Sob. Sob. Stay tuned. . .
Meanwhile, have you seen this? Ha ha! Sucky video quality. Sorry, but all these other ones were from news outlets that turned 12 seconds of footage into lame two-minute reenactments!
