Northern California Winter

2019-02-14 22:01:48.938056+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

So on Monday, some of the office conversation revolved around a garage remodel in my boss's neighborhood which seemed excessively robust, involving various upgrades to the support and bracing. I commented that it had been a couple of years, but I remember when we had a wet rainy winter and there were houses in southern Marin sliding off houses, and if I was rebuilding a garage in his neighborhood I'd want it pretty darned beefy.

Anyway, this is a block or so up from his house. We're having a real actual California winter here. Marin storm havoc: Sausalito mudslide, broad flooding, outages.

I'm not sure it's possible to build a structure that beefy, however.

My drive over to Novato on Monday to call may be interesting: Levee breached near Highway 37 in Novato as rains pound North Bay

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
