The Pilchuck River flood turned out to be a record setter. In the past, just the east bank had flooded. This time they had flooding on both banks of the river. Quentin and Sarah had four feet of water in the lower level of their house. I was unable to take pictures of their house when the water was highest. Their road was under water so I couldn't drive by the house. I did take some photos of the river from the bridge on Three Lakes Road. I don't know how much flooding took place upstream but I know there was a lot of flooding south of this bridge. The tidal flow causes the Snohomish River to rise and fall several miles past the city of Snohomish, which is where the Pilchuck flows into the Snohomish River. The maximum water flow in the Pilchuck river coincided with the high tide in the Snohomish River. There was no place for all this water to go as the Snohomish river was already at flood stage.
