It's everywhere; It's water

We have set a new record for a month's wetness here in the great Pacific Northwest, and the month is barely half over.
No big surprise, those melted glaciers have to be somewhere. What better place than here, where they are known and loved?
Plus, you must realize that the main product of carbohydrate combustion is water.
We are making the stuff at a fantastic rate.
The other main product is carbon dioxide
These are the two main ingredients of soda pop!
We are turning the planet into a giant soft drink!
Anyway, there is lots of flooding in all the rivers here. Lots of houses washed out to sea, so to speak.
Most of these rivers have Indian names, like Stillaguamish, Snohomish, Skykomish, Duwamish, and lots of other mishes.
"Mish" sounds a little like a foot sloshing in water, doesn't it?
It is an Indian suffix meaning "Nice place to fish, but DON'T BUILD A HOUSE HERE!"
