    Is it a make or trade name?
    A little bit of both.
    These 'baggies,' often with twist-ties or a 'zip-lock' closure, are
    available in sizes from 4cm X 6cm out to about 30cm X 35cm.
    (One ounce, to one gallon).

    I have searched for some Seattle underground pictures. That is fascinating.

    There was something similar near to me but on a much smaller scale. Due to the building of a bridge to cross a railway, a couple of buildings had their ground floor buried to allow the road to rise. A few years ago the building's wall started to move so they excavated around it and put in a new suspended pavement (sidewalk to our US friends). Whilst the work was going on, it was interesting to see the old ground level and the bricked up doors and windows in the ground floor.

    Obviously not on the scale of Seattle but still interesting.

    I like to look at the glass as half full. We should be getting a few nice days in only seven or eight months.

    'Baggie' is a trade name that has become a ubiquitous term, much like our use of the trade name Kleenex to denote facial tissue of any brand. (On a side note, why doesn't Kleenex produce toilet paper?)

    I am not going to let the weather dictate what I can or cannot do this year, by golly. I am going to invest in a decent rain cover for the camera (as well as one for myself) and not let a little water stop me. Granted, we're expecting deluge after deluge this next week, and I do have some reading to catch up with...

    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA
    844 AM PST MON NOV 19 2012

    ...HEAVY RAINFALL TODAY WILL LEAD TO INCREASED RISK OF LANDSLIDES
    IN WESTERN WASHINGTON...


    RAINFALL UP TO 1.5 INCHES...WITH LOCALIZED AMOUNTS NEAR 3 INCHES...
    DURING THE 24 HOURS ENDING AT 8 AM PST HAS INCREASED THE SOIL
    MOISTURE TO MODERATE LEVELS ACROSS WESTERN WASHINGTON. ADDITIONAL
    RAINFALL OF UP TO 2 INCHES IS EXPECTED BY LATE THIS EVENING. THIS
    AMOUNT OF RAIN WILL PUT EXTRA PRESSURE ON SOIL INSTABILITY...
    LEADING TO A RISK OF SCATTERED LANDSLIDES.

    CUMULATIVE RAINFALL OVER THE LAST WEEK HAS SOAKED SOILS TO THE
    POINT WHERE THE WASHINGTON LANDSLIDE RISK LEVEL WAS MODERATE.
    THE PREDICTED RAINFALL COULD RAISE THE LEVEL TO HIGH. THE HIGHER
    THE RISK LEVEL...THE MORE NUMEROUS THE LANDSLIDES ARE LIKELY TO
    BE.

    Have you seen it down here? That's no joke!

    Well, it is...

    But a friend's basement flooded, there's a puddle in the middle of the road that's nearly three feet deep, the storm drain system's overwhelmed... I really ought to have gone out to get some pictures, but the heat was on, the cocoa was on the stove...

    Wind, Rain Pummel Pacific Northwest, Cause 1 Death
    By Doug Esser, Associated Press, November 20, 2012

    "Residents in Washington and Oregon braced for more wet weather after a fierce storm swamped streets, toppled trees and large trucks, cut power to nearly 50,000 residents, and caused at least one death."

    "Flood warnings were issued for a handful of western Washington rivers, with moderate flooding expected Tuesday along the Chehalis River in the Centralia area."

    "Nearly 2 inches of rain fell in six hours Monday in one Seattle neighborhood — a total that Seattle Public Utilities meteorologist James Rufo-Hill called 'extraordinary.'"

    "In Washington, peak storm gusts reached 101 mph on the Megler bridge linking Oregon and Washington and 61 mph at Hoquiam on the Washington coast. They hit 114 mph on isolated Naselle Ridge in the mountains of southwest Washington, the Weather Service reported."

    "In Portland, Weather Service meteorologist Kirsten Elson said powerful Northwest storms are not uncommon even as early as November."
