Big Weather Weekend Here in Northern California

Wow – we received a torrential downpour here in Orinda, and the Sierra is no doubt having near blizzard conditions. My neighbor and I fixed his drainage situation – but the water over powered our drainage system. It would have been much worse if we hadn’t done what we did – but I think he needs to have some professionals take what we did to the next level.

Our road was repaved this past October, and it has changed all of the drainage. One area that was a serious problem was fixed – but now we have this new issue to deal with. And we will.

    • We ended up with 2 inches – and at one point it was how fast it came down that was the problem. I think my QTH gets a bit more than other places here in Contra Costa – the Golden Gate is straight through this notch above the Caldecott Tunnel. Then, we are just on the other side of the Oakland hills – so we get some effect of the “lift” over the hills.
