Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

We did fine but my brother lives about 1 mile from me and lost a big tree - onto his house. Poor guy he is trying to sell the house and first the buyer backs out and then he gets a forest view from inside his kitchen. Happy birthday to David!

Beautiful here today. I remember those floods of 96. My husband was working for the City of Dallas at the time and they all had to go out and sand bag. The whole Valley was getting hit and hard. The winds reminded us of the Columbus Day storm in 62. WOW. My father-in-law worked for PP&L at the time. The crews were out for 70 hours straight before geting to go home for 8 hours sleep. I was 13 at the time. Was standing looking out the window of our dining room. Watched a huge plate glass window pop out of the grocery store across the street. Boy was that something!!

It's a beautiful day today. Hard to believe in the last week we were freezing, flooding and almost blew away 8) - We have 5 large limbs down in the back yard and several smaller boughs. We've had worse but not much! I was happy to be at work yesterday and away from those giant trees. They always make me nervous during wind storms - the insurance agent in me knows how devestating they can be.

Fortunately we've only had a couple of claims at work. In the 12/12/95 storm that preceeded the 1996 Floods we had over 125!

I feel terrible for the people who are suffering from Flood Damage and are displaced from their homes. My heart aches for them.

I am glad I did not lose power here in Albany and glad that the worst of the storm is over....Glad I was not at the coast even though I love to watch storms over there in a ocean front motel room, this one was just way to strong to enjoy.

They called off school in the nearby towns, the wind had been strong but so far not to much power outage. I have plugged my computer back in now and hope for the best. I went to town and library today and that was a little wild. I had to go to the vets office and one of the employees there said she was going to drive back to Powers after work. Powers is 21 miles from civilization and the road is lined with trees. I'm hoping she changed her mind. I told her the story of the columbus day storm in the 60's when a school bus from Broadbent just escaped being crushed by a tree. The janitor of the school was behind the bus and was hit and killed. I hope that made her ask for an early release home. Anyway I am snug as a bug in the house now with the dog sleeping on a rug next to me while I type. Bye for now

Real strong winds, snow in the hills and Blue's. The wind melted the snow we had in just a few hours. Windy with some rain right now.

Rainy, windy, and cold in Albany. Heard that part of Lebanon was without power for a couple of hours and Wal*Mart closed because of it.

Have a great week and try to stay warm and dry.

May God abide in all of us and help us in our weight loss goals.

God bless our military personnel and bring them safely home to us.

May the sun be ever at your back and may God keep you uplifted.

I rode home from Olympia to Portland last night, in a combination of snow and rain. It was much warmer here when we got home.

It's raining pretty hard here in Hillsboro and blowing fairly hard...I think the wind is picking up. Husband has delayed putting up outdoor lights as they would probably blow down or get all tangled. The weather doesn't look too good for the week, until about Friday. At least the weather forecast is not too promising.

With a REAL wind storm here (and a bit of snow, ice, etc), how is it affecting your area of the state?

The winds have started kicking up here. I hung a thick quilt over the sliding glass door and put the kitchen table up next to the glass to try and keep the wind from sneaking in.

Just went outside, and I see roofing around the driveway, will have to let the landlord know tomorrow, but I am not sure if it is mine or neighboring houses.
