First rain

Usually the first rain flushes out the culverts. But we've been in drought mode for several years. Then there's the problem of houses built on flood plains. When the rivers and creeks rise, it floods. Culverts aren't the problem then. The water has nowhere else to go. Higher ground. We used to love the flood season on the Russian River. I've been through some major floods. We'd get landlocked in Forestville, cut off from the world. And party like rockstars. Those were the days.
