THE FLOODS
When we moved here in 1993, we were in the midst of a drought. That ended in the summer of 1994 with some dire consequences, as shown in the pictures below. Three storms within a short period resulted in three floods. Each one was considered a "once-in-a-hundred-year" storm.

After the 3rd flood a major project was taken to increase the capacity of the storm sewers. We've had no drainage problems since.
