Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
We've had record rainfall the last two days. Officially, 3.75" on New Years Day, which is three times what we usually get for the entire month of January. But I talked with a friend who said his 6" rain gauge had overflowed, so it was even heavier in some places. And another inch or two came down today. The bridge on our road is underwater. It spans a creek about 20' wide and the roadway is usually about 10' above water level. We can avoid that bridge, but we have to detour several miles and cross the creek via highway bridges with higher clearances. Interesting start to the new year.
