Day 18, 2012 Looks like Salem made the national news today. I was mildly surprised when I woke up to find a good majority of the backyard under standing water. Fortunately for us, we live in a pocket of town that isn’t near any creeks or rivers but there are many in Salem that aren’t as lucky.
Several roads have been closed due to flooding. They’ve already announced that the public schools and the community college will be closed tomorrow. Flood warnings have been issued for this area including the Willamette River which is expected to rise above flood stage early tomorrow morning.
