Some nice flood pron for you guys.

These are from a presentation we got from the National Park Service, for the November 2006 Mount Ranier Flood. According to the presentation, on November 6th and 7th, Mount Ranier got 18 inches of rain in 36 hours.

Heh. That's the flood operations center during the flood. And right after...

A 5,000 foot landslide...




Do you see the picnic table in the middle of the logjam?



Took out a road.



And another one. Chewed up the banks pretty good, too.

Why did you spell "porn" wrong? I'm curious if it's a typo, or if you're a 1337 4ax0r.

Anyway. I was in Missouri, they've got all kinds of crazy flood control stuff in place in the Mississippi river valley. You probably would have liked it, but it didn't occur to me until just now.

All the cool kids say pron, but I am not a 1337 4ax0r. Not a typo. I'm also thinking I'll need to get rid of the "f-ck me b--ts", 'cause they're like, a third of the searches now. I feel like I'm disappointing people.

Also, for no good reason, Anand and I've said "ogronic" instead of organic for many years now.

So I bike to work today and this is how nature repays us? That's it. I'm gunning my V6 on the way in tomorrow.

Great pictures.

Although it is heartbreaking to when people's lives are devasted by nature, how can you not be in awe at the amazing things that happen in nature?

The "took out a road" picture is quite amazing. It looks like just a little precision "snip."

Just post pictures! Problem solved, no more disappointment.

I don't even have calf length boots, which sucks, cause I actually want them so I could wear this cute red skirt I have. But it is hard to find comfortable tall boots that fit over my incredibly muscled calfs. Also, they wouldn't be f*ck-me b**ts, 'cause they wouldn't be hip height, and I likely wouldn't post a picture of myself in them, 'cause I think it is funny that you guys can't decide what I look like. (Although I know you can, 'cause we met.)

Jens:
Nope, just spam.

Does it look like machine-generated spam is penetrating the "Word Verification" (which is a challenge even for ME, and I am considered almost human!), or is it just some (being actively kind here to a commenter, do we have to do that even a spam commenter or can we use four letter words?) entrepreneurial minded human soliciting an alliance.

Dunno. It was someone who drew a picture of a dragon with a link in the nostrils that didn't seem to love Los Osos sewers. If you don't love the Los Osos sewers stories, you're automatically spam.

It sounds like your anti-bot system is safe....real spam is never that well targeted.

When my mother-in-law died, I was in charge of cleaning out her email account. The three Nigerian scam spams she got might have made SOME sense, but the countless ones promising to increase the size of her male reproductive organ -- or even the length of her ejaculation -- seemed kind of wasted.

here are some boots for you. Vasque makes good stuff.

I'm not sure I understand the point of the boots girls like to wear, you know, the non functional kinds.

danner also makes good stuff. But, they're not usually waterproof clear to the top.

I don't know anything about the types of boots girls tend to like though.

It would SO serve them right if I linked all the f-me boot mentions in the previous post to pictures of those boots.

Those are great boots. Think of all the fun places you could go with them. If you're carrying much weight you want something with a really stiff sole, and lots of ankle support, so you don't twist your ankle walking on uneven ground.

And waterproof comes in handy more often than you would imagine.

I love my boots, I take them everywhere outside with me. If nothing else, they keep the trail debris out of my socks.

why does this feel awesome to look at? oh, actually, i guess that's the original, intended definition of the word "awesome." but i kind of meant "rad" when i first said it.
