Rain is almost always welcome in the area. County reservoirs are filling.

The biggest problem we have is the soil's mostly clay content. Water is absorbed but can quickly become super saturated leading to a landslide or it can run between irrigation pipes and the surrounding soil causing roads to fail-this happens fairly regularly in the mountain areas around here.

The amount of water you see is from several inches of rain over the course of an hour or so. It flows to the San Francisco Bay.

The area can definitely use the water, as the last few have been drought years. But too much at once can lead to landslides and other issues in the area.

That's quite a torrent! Do you need the rain as so many areas do?
