Five Feet High and Rising...

This last week definitely brought to mind that Johnny Cash song.   The crazy torrential rain in the Portland area just doesn't seem to stop.   Since Roamer's Rest is located right on the Tualatin River, we joked about it flooding but we were still surprised to see the ENTIRE bottom part of the park flooded.   When we checked in for our latest stay, we had a choice between a couple spots on the lower area and one on the upper level.  We decided to stick with the upper level but were second guessing it when the storms started, since we are at the far end of the park, surrounded by trees and the fear of one falling on us didn't seem too far-fetched!  For once, we made the right choice!    In the midst of crazy rain, Bill bravely hung some old-school lights to bring a little holiday cheer to our Airstream (along with a fabulous tinsel/pipe cleaner tree powered by USB which was an impulse buy at Target).
