    Bill, great set of photos as usual. Hope you enjoyed your trip out. Hope the weather changes for the better.

      Thanks. Hard to believe, but the weather forecast continues to show rain every day as far into the future as the daily forecast goes.

    I know you all needed rain and had been struggling with some drought conditions, but coming all at once is not the answer!! Hopefully your storms are settling down. My stepdaughter in Elk Grove had a horrific wind storm come through two days ago and caused a lot of damage.

      Yes, this is no way to end a drought! The greater Sacramento area had been hammered with washed out levees, flooding, downed trees, and widespread power outages

    Impressive photos! Thanks!
    Unimaginable amount of rain/water.

    If you recall the Gibson City, IL flood of 2021 a ballpark figure of 360 Billion gallons of water fell on the city in just 10 hours. And that’s just over 2 square miles.
    California has got to be in the Trillions and Trillions.

    Weather Channel says two more systems and then it moves north into OR and WA possibly.

    Stay safe!

      The online forecast shows rain every day from now through the 19th. Last night the TV guys said Santa Rosa should expect up to six inches over the next seven days. Fortunately, in Santa Rosa the amount of serious damage is relatively small compared to other areas because sometimes we have been getting short breaks (like 8-12 hours) between each big pulse of rain. That allows time to drain and dry, minimizing local flooding. But the Russian River is reaching flood stage, all the creeks are high, and the ground is saturated, so each new pulse becomes more and more difficult to handle.

      I think days ago they gave up on gallons, and now they talk about acre-feet!
