The River Hopped Up

It rained a lot on Sunday. The river hopped up, though not to a level of threat that showed up in the tribal email. John Gussman went out and took pictures, thank you Pacific NW Environmental Video Channel.

PS By Craig Childs' taxonomy of floods in The Secret Knowledge of Water— 'ornamental', 'powerful', 'Fear of God' — this one probably should be classed as 'ornamental'. Cliff Mass has videos of the Stillaguamish, and of Snoqualmie Falls. Those probably went to 'powerful'. :-)
