Although we reside in the valley, we are situated on the edge, which thankfully keeps us clear of the flood waters. While it would be ideal to live on the hillside, we are grateful to be safe. I received an emergency alert at 3:00 a.m., which startled me awake, warning us of the storm. I questioned why the alert was sent so early when most people are still asleep. It wasn't until my mother and I ventured out and saw the flooded construction sites, parks, parking lots, and streets that we realized the severity of the situation.

I haven't seen it like this before, but it's possible that it's because we've only been here for less than a year.

Yikes! Flooding is scary stuff indeed.

I'm facing serious wildfires here, with ten thousand people on the run from one region alone, others on 30 min. alert, and mandatory evacuations of large areas. Emergency alerts on my phone all the time.

And yet, flooding is perhaps worse, because it severely restricts mobility.

I would think wildfires would be even scarier.

Today I used the bus for the first time since the flood. Everything is back to normal, of course. However, I had heard that the transfer station was flooded and that the system had to use the library as its temporary transfer station.
