    I hope that no one on the Stew has any relatives or friends who were victims of that mud slide in Washington. How sad and scary. It is unreal how fast ones life can change in the blink of an eye. I hope I didn't cause any sadness, but I just had to ask. Those families are in my prayers and heart with so many people still missing. :(

    I was thinking the same thing. I can't imagine what these families are feeling. Prayers for all of them.
    I was thinking this for the plane in Malaysia, too. Poor families.

    Prayers for all--and if the worst happens, may the families have the comfort of knowing that complete strangers are sharing their grief.

    Glad to hear that those people will have a good prayer covering so to speak. Like the guy said on the news this morning, you can not imagine the scope of the mud and debris they are dealing with.

    Very sad and unfortunately in geological history it has happened several times on a much grander scale in this region. When I work to the south in Orting I often thought about huge mud flows that had happened from Mt. Rainier covering vast areas of the Puget Sound. These valleys now have huge populations working and living in an area covered by 20-30 feet of previous mud flows. Didn't help calm my fears that we had yearly drills getting to high ground.

    Prayers that families will have some since of closure and peace in time. Thousands of volunteers are working through the quicksand and mud. We have had some really heavy rains since the event. Everyone has been very generous. My husbands Rotary collected several thousand dollars at this mornings meeting for survivors.

    Oh so sad. I agree. I too did pray.

    Can you imagine what that must be to suffocate in mud.

    Then he plane that went down.

    If they have found pieces of plane.

    Why are they not going down to see if it is suitcases a float. This seems so unsure. I mean these are qualified people they say. If it was there families They would be down. Doe sit make sense to you.

    Jewell I can imagine that it would be pretty nerve racking living where you do. Funny how people can forget about the earlier tragic events that shaped that area.
    It is so good to see that the death count has dropped. But any death is such a loss.
    Like you said about all the outpouring of help both physical and financial.
    When I was out in Oregon many years ago. I fell in love with that state and Washington. Especially the mountains and the coastal area and have thought of actually moving out there now that my hubby is retired. I definitely would rethink where we would actually look to live.


    Carol--yes it is all so tragic. It is hard to make sense of why things like this happen. :rolleyes:
