around town in the rain

It's been raining here for the past few weeks.  A lot.  So much so that the locals were watching the Truckee River to see if it was going to flood.

Solomon and I went shopping together early on Sunday and took these pictures of the river and other spots in town.  The Truckee literally splits Reno in two but I don't think it really hit home until we tried to get across the river in several places to be turned away by barricades.  The industrial areas near the river were on high alert and my yarn shop was sand bagged shut for a few days, all the yarn moved up high just in case.

The rain is slowing down and I'm feeling a bit less soggy!


  1. Wow. What a rainbow at the end! And that first pic is a beauty too! Glad the rain is slowing.

  2. That's incredible - so glad they saved the yarn! ;) Happy Holidays to you + your family!!

    1. Thank you Ellie. You too, I hope you have a great Christmas!
