Saturated soil from gentle rains or snowfall is a killer. A moderate rainfall doesn't infiltrate the soil, it goes mainly into runoff which causes flooding. And tree roots don't hold as well in saturated soils and high winds can easily topple those trees.

We'll see what Mother Nature serves up for us... we'll mostly survive.

That's actually the smell of the Patchouli from the 1970's photo Treetop posted of himself earlier in the week.

Hey, at least in an earthquake your stuff is in one pile, not in the next county like in a tornado or hurricane!

Give me a earthquake anyday , They only seem to effect our third world cities. My house was built in the 30's the ones right next to me I hardly feel.
Tornado in the plains states is like russian roulette
