Wet and Wild

Water pours from the drain from
Highway 92 above.
On a wet and wild President's Day the Bay Area experienced flash floods, power failures, and road closures. Staying close to home, we went to the gym and Costco.

Another reason not to travel is to avoid potholes. Pothole damage can run into the thousands of dollars, and I speak from personal experience.

The good news is that we are less than halfway through the "water year" ending September 30th, and already rainfall totals have exceeded those for an entire normal year of about 24 inches.

Though the governor has yet to declare it, the drought is over. If we survive, we'll be in good shape.
