Someone just sent me this link With all the rain we've had recently it doesn't surprise me that stuff like this happened. This happened in Sultan, which is a little town, of about 3,000 people, where I happen to live. It totally sucks when there's flooding though. Normally it will take me about 50 mins to get to work and home. Duvall is a town I have to drive through to get to work and there's 3 diff bridges that can be taken to get from Duvall to Redmond, where I work. When it's flooding only one of the three bridges is open and traffic suxors! It took me 2 hours to get home the other night. Usually it doesn't stay flooded for more than a day or two and sometimes if I know the bridge is out I'll just work from home. It happens every year at least a couple times throughout the winter. It's a small price to pay. One of the main reasons I live so far away from work is cuz the housing is way cheaper. I have a 1400 sqft house with a 1/3 acre yard and a garage. I probably couldn't get an apartment living in Redmond for the price I pay for my house. I live in a cul de sac near a dead end road so we don't get much traffic going by which I really like. Before that I usually lived near a busy street and would hear cars driving by at all hours. I lived in Renton on a hill before moving there and it was near a busy interstate and there was non-stop car noises. I like the peacefulness of where I live. The dog barkings can get annoying at times but it's usually not too bad. I wouldn't mind moving sometime to a place with a smaller yard, I just don't have the time to keep all my trees and plants and grass and garden up like it needs. Moving sucks though. This was my first home and it's a lot easier to buy a house when you don't have one to sell. Not looking forward to having to go through that mess.
