Big weather in Reno

Post by Gottolovem » Sat Jan 14, 2017 9:04 am

Well we have had a winter like i remember from my childhood. My property was damaged severely "fortunately not the house" The culvert behind my home burst creating a literal river ripping through my property.
When all was said and done it ripped out my driveway and deposited around 50 yards of material in my backyard :evil:

Wow. No permanent damage? How often does that happen where you live?
