It just keeps raining  

It has been raining for a week now. Our creeks are filled and rushing over roads. Not supposed to stop raining until Friday. Scary part is the 20-40mph winds with gusts up to 60mph. This is too much winter.

Rain starts here tomorrow and is forecast to last three days. It was almost 50 today and thank goodness the ice on the driveway started to melt.

We had such strong winds today that it blew a bunch of tree branches down and knocked out our electricity from 8 to 11 AM. It affected 484 homes in my area.

First you posted pictures of how nearly empty your reservoir was and how the old bridge was visible and now you have flooding. The Gods must be angry. I wonder if we can blame Trump. :-))

La Nina for you. I remember it being like this about 20 years ago or so.

Yes, it is really good when the icy melts. We've gotten good snow fall at the resorts above us but because it came on so quickly everything is closed because it is a driving hazard. Hopefully they will open everything up for the weekend.

Man, that is rural living right? I hate when the power goes out. But it happens, right? I'm just glad for you that it wasn't out for too long.

I know right. I haven't been over it but I know Lake Tahoe has gotten 39 billion gallons of water just from January 1st! That is insane. Lake Tahoe is right over the mountain from us.

Definitely! It happens quite regularly here. In January, 1998, we had a terrible ice storm and the power was off for 3-5 days around northern NH. Southern Quebec was hit very hard, too. Once life was back to normal, we bought a BIG generator and it has been a Godsend.

We have power failures year 'round because there are so many trees and the winds are so strong. It blows branches and entire trees down on the line.

Generators are amazing. We haven't needed one where we are but you go 15 minutes above us and you do.

We typically have power failures during the winter. It is rare in the warmer months. I couldn't imagine losing power that much. Life would be so much simpler if solar was easier to achieve, no?
