Yesterday I volunteered under the EARTH label at a sandbagging site. Turns out our predominantly natural dam (with only a few man-mad parts) has the earth literally falling out below and around it and the man-made portions are failing as well. Local governments are preparing all who live in the valley for a big flood scenario.
So we're sandbagging. Citizens are filling the trunks of their cars and pickup beds with very heavy bags and hauling them around with a sense of urgency -- to beat the typical heavy rain season here in Western Washington. It's been very rewarding to volunteer; even when I live in a much safer area up on a hillside myself (thank goodness for very strong intuition capabilties that made me insist on the hillside when we were looking for our house 5-years-ago).
Repeatedly I have had visions of the greater Seattle area all under water. In my visions I thought it was all water from the rising sound. Now, with the dam failing, I'm seeing the vision come closer to reality in a different way.
