The Big Chill

The arctic weather that has frozen the Northwest is finally giving way to warmer but still wet weather. Forecasts for the next few days call for rain to wash the remaining snow away. Now the main worries are local flooding and collapsing roofs, including the parking cover at my apartment building. The latter did not fall on my vehicle but I'm not sure that the corner that did collapse is any worse than the rest of the structure. Maggie and I finally got our truck out on Christmas Day; streets in the area had been passable on previous days but our parking area has a definite slope to the left and lots of ice. It was easier to walk or arrange rides than try to make our way out. These days, there's enough clear pavement to keep from sliding into parked cars.

Anyway, here's what it looked like.
