The flood of January 2012

January 2012 is not yet over, but in the past five days, there has been a flood of epic proportions. I’m not only talking about rain.

Flood Oregon

This is the flooded creek in my neighborhood. Normally it is only around three or four feet wide and a foot or two deep. All over Oregon, there are flooding streets, backed up drains and even closed schools.

Earlier this week, Washington and Oregon were hit with ice and snow.

But the flood I’m referring to is less literal. Two of my dear friends received exciting news and I’ve been really happy for them. It’s been a true flood of emotions this week and as it is only the first month of 2012, I’m so excited to see what the rest of the year will bring.

Have you ever had days, weeks, months where there was a torrent of emotions and experiences that left you breathless?
