Wednesday night we received multiple smart phone messages and loud TV emergency warnings about mudslides and flash floods. Fortunately, we didn’t wash away, nor were we crushed by trees felled by the howling wind. I took a short ride in the rain on Thursday to survey some of the damage, including the rushing water at Flatrock.

Today we had a break in the rain for a few hours, so I headed out the Greenway for my usual cruise.

    There is something soothing about the rush and flow of water – the dynamism and geology in action, I guess. Of course, it is soothing and gorgeous if you aren’t caught up in it or it is flooding your home. Glad you are getting good rain after your drought conditions – hope it doesn’t do too much damage in the fire-affected areas. I love that someone knitted that giant pink pussy hat 🙂

    If we don’t watch out you’ll soon be riding like “Dancing George” all the time😉😉 we didn’t lose power but Carmel was/is a mess. So many down trees power was out for 48hrs in some places and over 14 streets closed to clear trees. I guess it pays to live in Seaside where we don’t have many trees!!

    That was quite a rush of water down Santa Rosa creek/river! Thanks for the photos!

    Love those no-hands action selfies! Please don’t make that a monthly challenge, though.
