For the second year in a row, I’ve been down in Palm Springs when my home state of Washington has been devastated by flooding. I’ve watched in horror and sadness as many people have had tragedies from the rains and floods. My home is safe and for that I’m thankful. The pictures on the news look straight out of Katrina a few years ago. Let’s keep all those adversely affected in our prayers and hope for a quick return to normalcy.
