Our snow is melting! We've had a ton of snow. This picture is from our front door. You can see there is still lots of snow in the mountains.
See the house on the left? Remember it and notice the cars parked around it and the water by the sidewalk.
In the meantime, look at the back yard. I am fetching of course. My flight path is in great shape!
My action is still great!
I still fly like the wind with Wilson in my mouth!
Stanley still steals Wilson when he gets a chance.
Me and Wilson are a team. I had to rest a minute.
Shoot, Stanley's chasing me again!
Now, about that house . . . the snow melted too fast and it also rained. That house, along with many others, flooded.
They have 5 pumps running and can't keep up with the water. They are trenching the back yard in hopes of diverting the water.
See how we are on the hill? Well the communities at the bottom of the hill are flooding and even worse . . .
The sewer system is running at 900% capacity and it is backing up in some houses down the hill!
Our mayor asked us to not use any extra water to help reduce the overload.
So I told mom if we play in the backyard it will be a good idea.
Luckily she and dad agreed with me! This is the last of the snow in the backyard.
But there's still lots in the mountains.
We hope it doesn't melt too fast BUTT this next week is supposed to be warm and sunny.
We will cross our paws for those who live below us!
