Stormy weather

“It’s going to be wild and wooly in the Hoh the next few days.”

That’s the word from John Preston, a park ranger based at the Visitor’s Center at the Hoh. With somewhere between 12 and 20 inches of rain expected by Thursday, the flooding is likely to be extensive. The warmer temperatures are melting the recently fallen snow, adding to the danger, and winds are strong as well, gusting to 60 mph in some areas, so fallen trees are going to be everywhere. Other rivers that will be hit hard include the Queets and the Quinault but there will be slides and washed out roads all over the western slope of the Olympics.

This must be why they call it a rainforest.
