It's pretty bad. Where we live, the drainage is good and I wouldn't have known the extent the damage except for news footage. (We don't even have a puddle).

Does anyone know how the area around Bonney Lake faired? We just rented a home in Bonney Lake and although the mgmt company says it's doing fine, still wondering how the area around there is.

We move in on 12-14, can't wait.

Queen Anne has been fine, other than the mud slide over by Westlake :-/ I guess Perkins Lane on Magnolia is sliding again and also somewhere on Alki. Lots of pix up on the Seattle Times site.

*snort*

The first part of December seems to be the time we get hit the hardest.

- 129mph winds recorded at Bay City, OR
- Golden Gardens Drive collapses
- Parts of I-5 between Portland & Seattle closed and under as much as 10 ft of water
- downtown Woodinville flooded
- Chehalis flooded
- Parts of Hwy 101 closed

The list goes on...

When folks from out of the area ask, we should probably add flooding to the earthquakes, volcanoes, bear attacks, and sinking floating bridges to our list of hazards of living here.
