Raymond Pics 2020
1/10/2020 High water on the Willapa River. This river is a
tidewater. Water quality is described as 'brackish'. Partly
salt-water. Ironically, the town of Raymond, Wa. gets its drinking water
from it by means of a filtering station. Coming out of the faucet, the
water appears cloudy. Safe to drink says the city council. So far
I've been drinking this tap-water for the past 2 and 1/2 years as have all the
citizens of this remote little town. With regards to the property in this photo,
it sees the river water up to its doorstep every year during winter months. I
have yet to see the home itself become flooded.
1/10/2020 The downriver shot from taken from my balcony. I record
this shot at different times of the year to mark how the view changes with
seasons, weather and river flood waters.
1/ 14/2020 First snowfall this winter. Temperature = low 30's. (°F)
1/14/2020 Looking downriver on this snowy day
1/14/2020 The downriver shot again at sunset. Snowfall had momentarily
ceased. Notice the river water level. This level is determined by ocean
tides as well as storms coming in from the Pacific.
1/21/2020. Another high water day as viewed from my balcony.
1/23/2020. More high water today. Dense rainfall combined with wind
gusts up to 14 mph. A good day to stay inside.
