(Snohomish) Like so many rivers in Washington State today, the Snohomish is very much on the rise.
The National Weather Service now expects record flooding on the Snohomish River at Snohomish.
Forecasters say it will crest at 10 p.m. Thursday more than 10 feet above flood stage. – Seattle P-I/Associated PressSource (no longer online): http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/6420ap_wa_flooding_snohomish.html
When I set-out with my video camera this morning, I thought I’d head for Arlington and the flooded Stillaguamish river. However, as I first approached the Snohomish exit on Highway 9, I felt compelled to take a quick look in that town.
It wasn’t a quick visit.
What I saw was enough to keep me busy for a couple of hours, while conveniently removing the threat of encountering even higher water further north in Arlington.
