Compared to other parts of California, San Joaquin County and Galt came out of the weekend's series of storms unscathed, despite howling winds on Friday and almost 3 inches of rain over a two-day period.

Although several trees tumbled to the ground, most emergency services and public works agencies reported few major problems Saturday and Sunday, especially considering the severity of the storms.

    Those parks were built and designed to be primarily catch basins for rain and flood water in the first place, as are many of the new "parks" in these new developments that are going to be built. Otherwise these "parks" would've been built on street level and not down in a big pit designed to hold water. Two of the parks in Southwest Gateway, I believe, aren't even going to have bathrooms required by the city for this same fact. What a rip off.

    Finally, there is a local example of the effects of global warming. The polar ice caps are melting and the water levels in the catch basins go up! Thank you Al Gore!
