How's everyone doing following the rain? I had a Facebook wall post from Patch user Leslie Dickinson. Here's her water-related problem. Are you facing the same issues? "I live next door to the wash. It has been full of debris for weeks. With the heavy rains it is backing up and about 2 feet from over flowing, right now. But during the heavy rains it was only 1 foot. Who do I call? I tried the Sheriffs department and 211. Neither was able to help me." I'll follow up with Leslie's question. Let me know if you have any weather-home-foothill related questions. Thanks!
