I made it in by taking about a 1.5 hour detour up to Sumas (Canadian Border) and then back down to Bellingham by way of flooded roads along flooded fields.
The 17 year old son (Aaron) tried coming the same way and ended up with a dead car in Sumas, but got a ride back home from some nice folk. He'll be ok, he's got food, water, heat, cats.... just no electricity.
The 7 year old (Mark) is at the babysitter's, and will stay there overnight till I'm done with work tomorrow, and can pick him up and head home for a weekend of camping.
I'm staying at "the Pitt" tonight.
