From Drought to Flash Flood Warnings in 1 Week

File this under the "Be Careful What You Wish For" label...

Northern California's driest winter on record finally saw some rain start falling last Sunday. And it's been coming down hard pretty much ever since.

My phone just rang with a surprise text alert: Flash Flood warnings are in effect for Sebastopol until 7:30pm tonight. (oops - just received a second one: it's now until 7:45pm)

VERY Close call

As we invest in our preps to increase our resiliency, we are often operating in new territory. So, we are vulnerable to the unexpected - or as Donald Rumsfeld would put it: the 'unknown unknowns'.

I recently had a wake up call on this front.

Yesterday I came within 1 inch of losing my hive. I mean that literally: ONE inch.
