Road Washouts Associated with Methow Storms: There was a low of 61 and a high of 98, with a mix of sunny, stormy, and overcast days. Heavy rain, high winds, and lightning passed through the valley on several occasions this week. Several isolated storm cells sat over portions of the wildlife area and caused considerable erosion. Most of the erosion took place on Lester Road (unnamed creek) and on Ramsey Creek Road where Pearrygin Creek blew out. The aftermath is something to behold.
