Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain...

Okay, question. What happens when you get a lot of rain in a very arid area in a very short amount of time?



If you answered flooding, you get a prize. Spent last night at Mom's house, and when I went to go home, found that the area of Sierra street down by the park was completely flooded. The pictures are from my cellphone, so they're small, but that black dot in the middle is a SUV. From what I heard, the driver saw the water and the other two cars stuck, and decided to plow through anyways. When I left, the water was up to the windows. Will have to go back to Mom's because the parents are stuck up at South Lake Tahoe because both I-80 and the Mount Rose highway are closed due to mudslides, and Carson just declared a state of emergency due to flooding and all the mudslides from the area of last summer's wildfires. Also, the last time it rained this much, there was a decent amount of water that leaked in downstairs. Anyway, will be moving the bad movie/alcheehol getogether over to Mom's house. Given the weather and drinking, if you guys want to spend the night, feel free. There's plenty of room.

Arghh. Off to clear the drainage ditch.

Just got home from work- I'm on a hill, but there's a mudhill behind me that looks ominous right now...
