We have been getting a lot of rain to say the least, not as much as the '96 flood though. I didn't have a camera the other day when the water level was higher at Willamette Falls or Clackamette Park.

One of the pics from the falls shows the boathouse that almost went over the falls. Clackamas County Sherriffs Riverpatrol, kept it from going over. Note: the debris on pavement in foreground of the picture at Clackamette Park was the water level there the other day. Kids are standing on the temporary shoreline where the Willamette and Clackamas Rivers meet.

Yah, I remember the '96 flooding, and these pics are an awful reminder of that flooding.

The river is pretty high here too. Haven't see it this high in a few years. Last winter it looked like it does during the summer and that isn't an exaggeration.

Usually Johnson Creek floods pretty good but haven't heard much about it. The Pudding River has flooded a lot of farm land just outside of Canby, in the Barlow area. Pat Acre's, the Go-Cart track, is completely underwater, not many folks got their stuff out before the river flooded the area.

Where's FEMA?
