The rainstorm, predicted for days now, did not hit us as hard as expected. That happened elsewhere and the photos and videos from Los Angeles are frightening.
We got the first rain last night at around 4 in the morning, a rather benign downfall, not the expected pouring and lashing.
Now it probably will be raining on and off for a couple of days. That would be wonderful, as we need the rain, but not as devastating downpours with their subsequent destruction.
I believe we were lucky this time around. Great!
(And for the future we have the new rain gutters and french drain in place.)
