Rain just as powerful as snow
In the previous entry
I showed the March rainfall here, totalling 4.5 inches. I was thinking we were lucky that La Nina started late this year. The same amount of precip in December would have made about 60 inches of snow, and would have collapsed lots of roofs.
Turns out the liquid water has also collapsed one flat roof! An auto-repair business,
constructed in the '80s when the builders really should have known better. Flat roofs in snow country are simply a terrible idea.
Presumably the owners failed to keep the drainage pipes clear, so that the water accumulated over a month.
