  • California rain

    We get heavy rain in Texas and it can move from an inconvenience to a life threatening situation in a few minutes . Please be careful!

      It's mainly the coastal areas, but everyone is getting a long deluge. Last year we couldn't get enough rain (be careful what you wish for). Reservoirs are full, but a lot of old trees are down. It's so sad to see some of the oldest ancient redwoods gone. We're wet where we are but both south of us in Gilroy and the coastal towns and north of us in Marin are both getting hit pretty hard.
      It's an equal opportunity disaster, the rich folks in Montecito are completely flooded and evacuated.
      On the home front Lola is safely in the garage under her car cover and I have a couple of hundred palm branches in my front yard
      And a yard waste bin the size of a thimble.

        Thanks for posting this. I was just coming out here to do this.

        We are seeing the stories on the news about the rains that are coming in systems one after the other, and the burned areas being at risk for (as the National Weather guy put it), "landslides, rock slides and mudslides." Yikes. My friends in LA said that they are ok. Hoping this remains the case for everyone.

        Up here in Minnesota we are reaping the effects of a lot of this precip as well. I got 20" of snow over a 3 day period last week. It's beautiful.

        If it has tires or testicles, it is going to give you trouble.

          I am glad you are okay. We certainly would not want to have any silver cars need to leave the safety of thier garages.

              No stable is complete without a "beater" for just this kind of situation!

                It is common to have your lifted f250 as you high water vehicle in Houston. However when the flood waters at 6 ft deep in the neighborhood then even that is not enough. So the preferred rescue vehicle is an aluminum flat bottom boat

                    Amphicar is the answer to the unasked question!

                      I had also been wondering about our California members. I pray that you are all staying safe. Take care, everyone.
