Washington Reeling From Natural Disaster

The landslide (mudslide) that hit Snohomish County in Washington state one week ago to this date is one of the worst natural disasters in our state's history and the worst in the nation this year.  Thus far, at least 18 people have perished and many more are missing.   Our sympathy for the families of the deceased, and gratitude to those helping in the relief and recovery efforts.  This has been a great loss to Washington and the nation.

If you can, please, help survivors with donations to the American Red Cross and other legitimate relief agencies.
