Extreme Wx – Port Orchard Version

Was sitting on the pot when a peal of thunder shook the house so much I actually thought we’d been hit by a truck. There was a Qwest truck in the neighborhood fixing our phone lines (someone took them out in an accident) and I thought maybe they’d lost control and rammed the house.

Then I started hearing reports of “Tornado” and “Gas Leak” and “Going door to door to evacuate” on the police bands. What?


Yep, we had a Tornado in Port Orchard. Did some damage too. Of course it was all over the local (Seattle) News and they absolutely talked it to death. Luckily no one was injured. So, Cool.

b_P1140194Our Internet went down a few days ago. Day before yesterday I spent about 2 hours on the phone with Qwest tech support (thanks, Gerald!) to have him finally assign a tech to come out and check the lines. Yesterday, went to check mail and saw 4 Qwest trucks and a digger working on the telephone lines for our entire subdivision. Seems someone ran off the dirt road into a steel gate and took out the main junction box for all our phone lines. Thanks Anon Driver. They got it fixed yesterday though. Good!

Not a whole lot else going on around here. Me and the Dog manage to make our walks but it is really (really!) wet out there. Ground squishes when you step on it. I’ve never seen so much running and standing water on our property. And we lost another alder. More storms moving in over the next week. Stand by…

Chili-fries for dinner. Cause I can.
