While there has been much written about the December 2-3 storms, here are some local notes of interest:

1. A record single day rain total for the date of December 2nd
of 2.12 inches beat the former record of 2.01 inches set in 1975 at Olympia Regional Airport. Additionally, the 58 degree high temperature was 2 degrees short of a record high that goes back to 1982.

2. A record single day rain total for the date of December 3rd
of 3.19 inches beat the former record of 2.77 inches set in 1982 at Olympia Regional Airport. Additionally, the 58 degree high temperature was 2 degrees short of a record high that goes back to 1982.

Additionally, locals submitted pictures of our flooded streams carried by KOMO-TV 4, Seattle’s ABC affiliate:

“Sea-Tac Airport recorded four inches of rain on Monday, the second wettest day on record, according to the National Weather Service,” quoting KING5 News, Seattle’s NBC affiliate.

Wal-Mart says it does not build stores in flood zones. The site of Yelm’s Wal-mart was under water last January and this Chehalis location shows that store completely an island!

Will Yelm’s Wal-Mart be flooded this winter?
Stay tuned as Professional Engineer Ed Wiltsie is on the record at City Hall saying that the Yelm Wal-Mart was approved on a high groundwater area and prone to flooding.
