OT: Western Weather update...
Hi Wess and all fellow coffee roasters. It's very wet here in Stevenson
Washington. We are 50 miles east of Portland Oregon in the beautiful
Columbia River Gorge. Just across the Cascade locks bridge. Speaking of
bridges check out our event cam at our local web site.http://cityofstevenson.com/index2.htmlWe risk loosing our local bridge to high water. This bridge carries a main
water line, sewer, and natural gas lines. This is all a result of the slide
issues that have made the North West news out here. Joe Schlick who owns the
local Big River Grill put a web camera in a tree so everyone could follow
this serious issue. It looks like the Army Corp of Engineers is going to get
involved building a barrier to protect our sewer plant and local health
services. I missed the meeting last night so I'm not sure the out come.
So far I think the bridge is holding it's own. It's not light enough yet to
see the live cam clearly.
I hear the west coast got hit real hard. I have not heard the news yet to
find out how bad.
As Long as the lights are on I will be roasting coffee. If that fails here
out comes the barbecue.
Cheers,
JoeR

Ditto Alchemist John's remark!  Here is a weblink to our favorite beach.
On a normal day you have about 100 yards of nice sand to walk on.http://www.homebythesea.com/BattleRockBeachCam.htmlWe were in Portland on Sunday night and drove into the wind all the way
home.  I only wish I could have been in the lighthouse on Cape Blanco and
experienced some of those 125mph gusts and sustained 90 mile an hour winds
with a cup of the excellent El Salvador coffee I am drinking as I type!

Sheesh--we merely had an ice-slush storm Sun. and face 2-5" snow today  
through tomorrow. Comparative piece of cake--you can't shovel flood  
waters off your driveway or drown in a short snowdrift.  Best wishes  
and good luck (from a former Seattleite).

Commuting by bike gets a bit more challenging.  Coffee tastes better after an hour
of pushing through constant rain and headwinds with gusts up to 40mph.  
Portland's wind hasn't been as severe as other places.  The largest benefit to the
weather is learning what clothes need to be improved on for all day wet riding
comfort.  The biggest issue for me is riding through flooded street sections.
Other than that, it's a grand time to stay inside.
Yesterday provided a huge contrast with clear skies and warm temperatures.
For those that don't know I-5 the only freeway between Portland and Seattle is
closed.   The Chehalis river flooded with flows 100 times greater than normal.  
Trains are stopped too.  Reports of I-5 reopening vary from tomorrow night to "a
few more days."
