What a Storm!

Yesterday we awoke to a big rainstorm.  We were very excited to see it, as it has been an exceptionally dry and warm summer.  Our fire danger was very high and the rains helped with that.  Then, the winds came!  We have downed limbs all over our yard.  It will take quite an effort to clean things up.  Many people surrounding us, lost power.  We were some of the lucky ones, who did not.  Roads into Rialto and the Hoh Rainforest were closed yesterday.  We are hoping they will open up today.  Our guests will be disappointed if they cannot get down to the rainforest.

Today we woke up to sunshine, but we know not to get too excited.  More rain is on the way.  Innkeeper Bill says it is because he is going on a hiking trip this week.  It could be.  It rained on last year's hike too!

Most of us are thankful for the rain, though.
