Michele and I ribbed our boss Nik on the air today about living on Lake Aspen. It was fun to goof around but luckily his wife and he have one of the few homes that managed to escape a worse fate.

Nik grabbed some video surveying the damage left behind by the receding waters.

I've seen Yakima flood a few times over the last 15 years but nothing at the levels we saw this week.

As the city gets backs to normal over the weekend, the flood of 2017 should remind us all to be better prepared for the next time this could happen in Yakima --- start stocking up on those extra sand bags now.
