Rain and levee update

Sacramento is at 199% of normal rainfall for the year. The impact on infrastructure has been dramatic, levee projects scheduled for future years are happening NOW. Trucks hauling rock are a common sight these days as levee repairs and rain continued.dsc05028The post office in Nicolaus. I watched the black car for a while as the two men inside tried to figure out how to get their mail. They pulled into the parking lot, both doors opened, and the men looked out at the 6″ deep water. The doors closed, the car left the parking lot and stopped in the middle of the road, one man got out and opened the trunk – I’m sure he got out his rubber boots.dsc05029In the middle of the night, a tree fell on Justin’s street and we lost power for half a day.dsc05032Meanwhile, the daffodils are blooming.dsc05034Rain, rain, go away.
