Why did the salmon cross the road?
A pic from my home state, just east of Seattle in the Rainier Valley area of Skykomish.

A chum salmon swims across the roadway amid torrential rains and flooding...




from MSNBC/Associated Press (link: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15602996 /)

"Gov. Chris Gregoire declared a state of emergency for 18 counties, authorizing the National Guard and the state Emergency Management Division to offer assistance. Helicopters and hovercraft were pressed into service for rescues.

Tens of thousands of children were given the day off from school Tuesday.

Mount Rainier National Park measured more than 10 inches of rain in 24 hours. Stampede Pass reported an all-time record of 8.22 inches on Monday.

About 200 to 225 elk hunters were evacuated Monday from hunting camps near the Cowlitz River in southwest Washington, said Lewis County Sheriff Steve Mansfield. A 29-year-old elk hunter died when his pickup truck was swept into the river, authorities said. "

4. Now we know what's up with all those Fish Crossing Signs
My daughter and I always had a joke about watching out for the fish when we see one of those signs. There's one around the block...

5. I love salmon crossing the road pictures. Work for when flooding stops...
go rescue those salmon that crossed the road and got stuck in a field or a ditch, throw them back into the stream so they can reproduce and die.
