Save The Bunny, Take The Survey

Over the weekend, I went to Forest Grove.

Sure, this might not sound exciting, but it was a chance to drive by the Harvey’s Marine rabbit and check out McMenamin’s Grand Lodge. Better than that, I got to spend the day tasting sake (and yummy saketinis!) at SakeOne, the world’s only American-owned-and-operated sakéry and the leading producer of “Ginjo” (premium) grade saké in the U.S.

From the bunny to the hotel to the rice wine, each of these places are important to Washington County — especially from a tourist and preservationist perspective.

And there are many other important people, places and things from Banks to Beaverton that also need protection from natural disasters.

So now’s the time to share your thoughts:

How would an earthquake or flood impact Washington County?

Are there culturally significant buildings that might be at risk?

What can the county do to reduce the risk for elderly or school-age populations before a disaster occurs?

Read a little bit about the Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan and then take the survey.

Do it for the bunny, guys.

  • I'd do it if I weren't about to be kicked off the computer in thirty seconds. XD

  • Funny thing, if you read the link above, you'll realized that Harvey came to us because of a natural disaster:

    "[Owner Ed Harvey] was just starting out when, as Vicky McCurry, his manager remembers, 'the Columbus Day Storm in '62 blew down half of everything in Oregon, including lots of service station men.' [Franchised kin of the omnipresent Muffler Men] One big fellah was brought to Ed's shop for repair because Ed was an expert fiberglass boat builder. 'But then, nobody came to get him. They deserted him. Maybe the bill was too high.'"

    See? Disasters bring more than just devastation…they also bring giant bunnies!!
