Thanks for your sympathies Gina - it is a tough time for these folks...

The broken dike resulted in flooding of the lowlands throughout our neighborhood, including this RV that looks like it was underwater nearly up to the windshield. Is there any possibility for salvaging a flooded RV like this one? A few years ago, another neighbor reported that flood waters caused his 13 ft Casita to float around in his driveway, and that the water eventually made its way in through the door. At least we know that the fiberglass eggs will float for a while in the event of a major flood!

Wow this thread has become very serious.

My light hearted jokes must have hit a sore spot, I apologize for my insensitivity.

My heart goes out to those of you suffering through the deluge; just think

My heart goes out to those of you suffering through the drought; just think

Pay it forward?

I know there are briliant minds out there (this IS FGRV!) as we speak, figuring out
1. A way to deal with this problem (with a little help from on-lookers) and
2. How to post the results here with a photo (sometimes even more difficult!).

We are thinking of wind farms in my neighbourhood, for example. Any experienced wind-farmers out there?

nah Morgan...no sore spots and you weren't being insensitive. I feel worse for those folks in Oklahoma and Texas to tell you the truth (and those REALLY suffering from water damage.) I just happen to really dislike rain that comes on end...But, there's a reason Oregon is soooo green. I just wish it wasn't happening all at once.

[b]NOT to get political, but if a terrorist organization really wanted to do damage, they'd figure out a way to manipulate the WEATHER.

Southern Plains asks: Will it ever rain?

Some areas more than 20 inches behind normal annual rainfall
