And we'll all float on okay

Portland's been wet. Wetter than normal. A lot wetter than normal. How wet? We've already broken an at least 70-year-old record for June rainfall a week and a half into the month. Recently we had three weeks straight of rain every day. Wet. In other words, wet. (I guess that would just be "word," wouldn't it?)

The Willamette River's high enough that the beaches on Ross Island, which I go near on my commute, are flooded. This is still nothing like the flooding we had in 1996, and it probably won't be that bad, but it made me go "Whoa."

We haven't floated away yet. And, thankfully, we started drying out today and should stay dry for at least a week. This is improvement. We'll take what we can get.

Edited: Here's photo proof, c/o DevlynPDX, from near the Steel Bridge. Yeah. That's high.
