My yard is flooding, my street is flooding, there is water, water everywhere and way too much to drink. Please send me a boat or at least some tickets to go somewhere where there isn't any rain. Thank you.

Any other Portland area Otter getting flooded?

Is it getting high enough to threaten the cars? I'd move them to higher ground if I could.

No, it would have to get really nasty before my car or truck was in danger. The worst that could happen is it could come up to my back door. Right now it turned my backyard into a swamp, damaged my roof a bit and turned my front yard into a giant mudpuddle....ugh.....

Live near Cornelius Pass and no issues with flooding right now. Lots of rain pounding, but no swamping yet to speak of. Probably cause I live on a slight "mound" if you will so the water drains downhill for me. Thank god I'm not near 185th it sounds like .

I found a few shingles on the ground. I'm not sure where it came from since it's been raining too fucking hard to go out there and take a good look.

Stupid rain screwed up my roof and my yard and my fence.

Yeah, I'm pretty much at 185th and Baseline and it's very swampy here.

No offense ma'am, but rain on the west coast means snow in the mountains. Bring it!

More water up here than I remember seeing in my lifetime. We have standing water in the yard... that never happens.

"One day it started raining, and it didn't quit for four months. We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin' rain... and big ol' fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath"

Yeah, it has been mild, but those pesky wildfires (due to the drought) buring down little towns are a downside in my book.

I know, my backyard is toast. It finally stopped raining for a bit so I've been working on clearing out my yard of debris and stuff.

Rain, rain, go away....
