Coming your way to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope everyone is having a great day. We had planned to drive up into the mountains for a Valentine's Day lunch. Wow, big change of plans. Mother Nature had other ideas. After our huge amount of rain, one of the dams up stream is overflowing. Hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated and the roads are all closed. This is the tallest dam in the nation and everyone is praying that it will hold. There are eight days of rain predicted to arrive later this week.
We are about 70 miles down from this dam. But if it were to breach water would make it way down to Sacramento along the Sacramento River before heading West through the delta and finally ending up in the ocean. I believe we are far enough east of the waterways to be safe.
So it looks like we will be having a local date for lunch and save the drive into the mountains for another day. We will just avoid all the rivers in this area for awhile until this crisis is over.
Wishing everyone a love filled day!
Happy Valentine's Day!
