Don't worry PE- I got a good laugh from it! Weather happens, and as I said, few prepare. We choose to live here, and Mother Nature will do what she's been doing for a long time. We have some big mountains around here, and fairly warm, wet storms (it's 52 degrees out right now) mean snow only at high elevations during the day, so there's a tremendous amount of water coming off them.
It's just a part of living here, is how I see it.
Looks like we're going to get three days to dry out, starting tomorrow.
