I wore my Multnomah Falls shirt in honor of the beautiful place on earth I adore so much. The gorge are has been changed and won't be able to get there til next year, more than likely. I-84 East bound closed from Troutdale to Hoodriver. For now. Much clean up to do! One lane open west bound, from what I remember hearing. I'm thankful my friend Teresa K. and family are ok. They are closer to the events than we are. Scary times. But God is amongst us.We found some clothes on a good sale. I wanted to use my $10 off coupon. A sweater and a long sleeved shirt for me and Megan found a nice top on clearance rack.
The next two days were still smoky. By Friday it got better. There was actually blue sky with nice clouds and the sun. So different than smoke high in sky and moon becomes red. Tues evening reminded us of the sky before the eclipse happened. Other people agreed with that statement. Saturday was first I was able to wear contact lenses again. 11 days but it's just all right.
Moon photo taken Aug 28th when there was much smoke in the air. Moon looked red at times. And now, as of this writing...Tues, we had 3/4th of an inch of rain today, as of 5 PM. Lots of it today with thunder and lightning and wind. Chilly evenings with snow at Timberline and Santiam pass. I pulled out my orange warm coat from closet to use after work tonight. I needed it. Heat's been on here at home.
Here's a link with a neat photo I wanted you all to see of fire fighters so diligently working to save Multnomah falls lodge and surrounding area! So thankful for them. Many were able to go home the other day because of the rain.
Last but not least, here's a big flower pot I bought out at Baumans when we went to Chicks Nite Out, the same week as above activities. I always liked this pattern and it was 60% off original price. $30! I can't wait to plant the Chinese lantern plant in it! It's huge and I now it will look pretty in it! Take care and God bless you!
