Oh, cry me a river. Its winter in No Cal. It rains. BTW, if that picture means SF will get flooded, then it looks like Latin America will get washed away.
Such erudition! Such a deep local knowledge!! Wow, aren't you informed, not.
I suggest you take a gander at William Brewer's account of the 1862 deluge (the article is wrong about the date). During those storms, the entire Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys formed the equivalent of an inland sea; they were entirely under water. The highest point in Sacramento was under two feet of water. Steamers could run 14 miles beyond the river banks. Ain't facts a pain?
Be advised the the magazine Scientific American may still be printed here in America, but its “scientific” part is questionable. Case in point: The flood was in 1862, not 1861.
While it would be nice of San Fransicko and Latin America were washed away, it won’t happen. Something about EPA not being happy with that level of river and ocean pollution.
But, if the Muslims force another Arab-Israel war, just imagine the EPA vexation over the released pollutants such as ground up Muslim which will result from the Aswan High Dam being nuked.
