Did You Survive the Wicked Weather?
I have lived in Oregon all my life. I am used to rain and wind. But I have never seen a storm like the one I saw on Saturday. The rain was falling all weekend of course, but I had a different perspective Saturday as I was outside, in the stands at Autzen Stadium for the Duck game. Pouring does not describe how hard the rain was coming down. It felt as if the rain was jumping back up off the ground once it hit. Fortunately, because I am a lifelong Oregonian, I came prepared in rain pants and rain boots. But I also found out that my "rain jacket" isn't quite rain proof in a typhoon.
I am also glad to say that this was the biggest of my storm problems. My power never went out, no trees went down in my neighborhood, and my roof does not leak! But that wasn't the case for thousands of people in the area. Did you get through the storm without any damage? Or did you have to clean up a fallen tree? Share your stories below!-Lacey
