It was a very good day. My favorite moment of inauguration morning was this:
Goodbye and please don't ever come back
I actually teared up with happiness as I watched that helicopter fly away. and was it my imagination or did that that event evoke the loudest cheer from the mall today?
Another observation: Did anyone else, upon seeing this man:
Suddenly recall this man
And now I can say PRESIDENT Obama.
That's not a flag pin, is it?
Then I went out in the county to do some map research and the day was quite a stunner. Here’s a snapper I took from the roadside this afternoon.
I hope everyone is happy and well!
I took these pictures off the user-submitted photo gallery of the Bellingham Herald site. These are all in Whatcom County. I have not seen any pictures yet of the devastation on the Skagit that is keeping me from going to work this weekend.
Right here in town
More urban flooding
One of many slides on the Mt Baker Highway
This is North Lake Samish - WOW.

Looking down at Squalicum Parkway from Eldridge, Jan. 7, 2009
I have not been around here too much lately, partly because of *cough*facebook*cough* and my other blog. I’m also doing things in the real world, I guess. Hopefully this end of days torrential rain-mudslide-flood thing will abate by Sunday so we can head up to Baker for some snow fun. Since I had to cancel work AGAIN this weekend due to dangerous road conditions. It’s been a crazy winter. I heard it was in the upper 60’s in Denver. Wow.
