Flooding Torments South Tacoma

It appears as if the tide has risen really high today at Mill Outlet Lumber at 4811 South Tyler St in South Tacoma. The weather forecasters were not kidding when they predicted Saturday 9/28 to be the first major drenching of the season. In a earlier surge of rainfall the office was actually cut off from the outside world for a time.

And it was only 10:00 am with torrents of rain and high winds predicted for the remainder of the day. “What if it gets so deep that the office floats away” said Bridget, the office manager here.

Across the yard there appears to be a reservoir filling to the brim, reinforcing images of flash flooding and carnage.

Needless to say, there are not a lot of customers braving the storm to purchase lumber. But who knows, if this keeps up we may have a rush on ark materials, which, by the way is our escape plan, ride a unit of appearance grade timbers to safety.

Until then we will keep making the best of things, and Stay Dry!

Super Tacoma Fire Logs

Fire Log Powers ACTIVATE!

Image

Never underestimate the power of the Lowly Tacoma Fire Log. Not only do they possess 8000 Btu’s per pound worth of heating energy, but add a little rainwater and they break concrete blocks like Bruce Lee. Seriously, Mike left these two Tacoma Fire Logs inside this Concrete block on Saturday and this is what we found this morning, our portable lumberyard heater, destroyed. This shows the great deal of compression that goes into making the logs as well as the low amount of heat wasting moisture they do not contain. These started out as neat little 3″ x 3″ nuggets and now they are over 4 times that size.

Tacoma Fire Logs at Mill Outlet Lumber, $5.50 per box of 8,  1/2 the price of Home Depot or Costco, comparable products or even less $275.00 per ton, 696 bricks or nearly 1/2 price again.
