OK, as I'm sure you all know, or maybe you don't... WE, Seattle area Folk, are flooding. It's truly been one thing after another here. First our sports teams suck ass this year, then all the snow and ice we got, now flooding, rain and WIND. BUT, there is a SMALL silver lining. EVERYONE in the horse/animal community is coming together... The Monroe and Puyallup fairgrounds have opened their doors for people to bring their water logged animals in for safety. People are offering up their trailering services to help out too.
Go to Seattle Craigslist and you will see an abundant amount of people offering up their land and barns for horses who need a dry place to go, because their owners farms are underwater. It's AMAZING!!! A very good thing to see when a fellow animal lover is in trouble and everyone pitches in to help. My property is soaked, but we still have a really good part that is nice and dry so I've been offering people to bring their animals over to my place as well.
Sorry boys and girls, I've got to keep this one short and sweet as it's time to go a tractor the property digging for some drainage...
PLEASE Check out these photos and articles from the Seattle Times... and if there is any locals around the Western WA area who can offer ANY help, let your fellow horse/animal lovers know! Believe me, they need it!!!
