UPDATE: Skagit River expected to crest above 1990, 1995 levels at the Skagit Valley Herald. The article has a photo overview of the edge of the river. In the image, the river can be seen at about street level: ordinarily, it’s about twenty feet below the boardwalk you can see in the back of the image along the flood.
I’ve looked for MV blogs but to no avail.
Also, my throat is sore and I expect to host a battle between my immune system and microorganisms over the next few days.
