It started raining early Sunday evening and as far as I can tell it didn’t stop much overnight. Our rain gauge recorded nearly 1.5 inches in 17 hours. I took these shots of the Dungeness River about four hours after the rain stopped. The river was much higher than usual. And it usually looks less like a roiling mud pie.
Lots of young trees and shrubs growing close along the river shores were up to their necks in the flow.
The snow pack in the Olympic Mountains is less than optimum and the freezing elevation was lowered in this latest storm. I’m afraid some of our snow pack became part of this river flow. The mountains have been hidden behind clouds so we haven’t had a look at the snow caps.
