Sad Day on Whidbey

Monday, May 27, 2013

It's a sad day today after we lost a section of our beloved island to a landslide, then we lost our I-5 bridge to an accident, many of us look at our two modes of exit from this beautiful island paradise with a crooked eye. Deception Pass bridge, though awesome to behold would definitely not deliver any survivors if it were to collapse. Our other means of departure is via the ferry which now runs at a 90 minutes wait, following the I-5 collapse. Looks like I'll be staying on the island for awhile to come.

    There are an awful lot of worse places to be stuck than Whidbey Island. Enjoy the biking.

    I love Whidbey....we lived in Woodinville Wa. for 23 years and had a 47 bayliner and boated all over the Puget Sound. Sad to hear about the slides and the bridge.

    I would do the very same thing!

    As beautiful as I find Deception Pass, I don't think I could bring myself to go over it right now.

    My thoughts are with you.

    Yes, it's been in our soCal news quite a bit. They say that traffic will be backed up for some time to come. Take care.

    My sympathies are sent your way brother! As our world changes, we struggle to hold on to what we cherish. Those things and people the we have are our comfort! Our memories can not be taken and faith is what carries us into each new day! Know this too that just as treasures can slip away, the greatest gift is to know that our sorrows to shall slip away as we stay focused on the blessing that can't be taken. Seek peace and warmth as you wait for your changes to come on the wings of a bright new day.
