We get about 44 inches of rainfall per year. The problem is when we get big storms that drop 2-3 inches of rain, with all of our mountains the water drains into the valleys, if it hits a valley just right, those creeks and rivers can flood.
Happened last year, big storm hit where I live. The creek on the other side of the hill from me flashed flooded, did a lot of damage. While the creek on my side of the hill was fine. Maybe only a mile away.
Then when the main river backs up, it backs up all the creeks and lasts a few days. When I was in high school, we had more flood days then snow days.

Wow... been a while. Yeah Ron, we ended up with 2 ft drifts throughout the neighborhood. But it was gone by Wednesday. Looking at the sloggy spring for the next trail run out here with the during melts starting down low.
