We spent most of this week preparing for the Storm of the Century. Our house is on a low, flood-prone stretch of Wolf Creek, and we’ve lost yard furniture and garbage cans in past years. Fortunately, the worst of the weather passed by the foothills this time around. The creek never even came close to running over its banks.
I feel for the folks on the coast who weren’t as lucky, but really, we Californians tend to overhype everything.
