It Never Rains-Man it Pours

th

California likes producing things in big ways. Five years of draught and we ended it with a rainy week. The state can’t handle the excess the water. There are few reservoirs and most water runs into the ocean. This creates added pollutants in our ocean. Water not fit to swim in for days.

The water not absorbed creates havoc on the roads. Mudslides and debris from fire ravaged hillsides flows along streets. Houses demolished or damaged by excess water careening down city streets. Add the extra hazard on freeways from drivers unused to driving in inclement weather. Imagine hydroplaning cars and washed out roads creating a recipe for disaster.

The sun will shine again and the hills will turn green. A welcome sight after a five-year draught.
