A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

It was just a trickle

The sign on Bryant Way was right on Christmas Eve, but just barely.

Water from the Calapooia River was running across this notorious low spot on the road just outside Albany’s Bryant Park. It was enough for the county to put up warning signs, but not nearly enough to close the road with the movable barriers installed about a year and a half ago.

It doesn’t take much to flood the road, but as of Christmas Eve the rains had not been enough. Long may it last. (hh)
