I'm in Belfair, Washington. The tide has gone back out so it's just soggy and muddy outside now!

Hi, hope you are safe and your trailer is alright. Just a thought, but maybe you should trip all of your circuit breakers to be safe. I wouldn't try to unplug it from shore power like this.

Hi, you need to hitch up and come around to the North side of the hill. It's been fairly nice up here, a little wet but no floods.

Marry Christmas, Dan

If I had the nerve to tow her I sure would! Went to Seattle the other day and the weather was beautiful, got home and it never stopped raining!

If the tide did that, I am guessing the water is pretty salty. I recommend you give the trailer, especially the bottom side a thorough fresh water rinse as soon as you can.

That's the beauty of the Northwest, if you don't like the weather all you have to do is wait a few minutes or travel a few miles.

Cheers, Dan

Yikes! That's just over the hill from where we spend spring and summer. Is that Belfair SP?

The water didn't get up to the bottom of the trailer, thank goodness!

Yep, just up the road from the SP! Been lots of flooding in this area in the past few weeks!

Yikes. I think you need an anchor and some pontoons.
