We had a lot more than 1/4 quarter inch of rain.....My street is flooded, and water coming up over the curb. My rain buckets are full.

They fill so quickly, don't they! I paid to have my system done; I have hoses at the bottom to drain, which I move from tree to tree and area to area each rainfall. I hope you can create some kind of drainage system. 2 of my three 200 gallon tanks, fed by the gutters, often fill in 2-4 hours. I use them more often as water guidance systems than storage systems! They're good for storage as the season tails off; and to disburse water more slowly between storms. My backyard was a saturated lake in many areas at 3 p.m. today.

A quarter of an inch of rain and the town falls apart and worriers start asking about Montecito?? What ever happened to the human spirit and the will to endure?

Yeti--2.4 inches at our house from 11am to 5pm. That's a little bit more than a quarter inch--and every reporting station in town got at least six times that much since late this morning. Not complaining at all, loving it, but it was coming down .5 inch per hour for a while there, pretty intense. Locales that are traditionally wet usually get it in smaller doses over a longer period. We often get drenched, and that can be life-threatening at times. Living in England, I was amazed at how two inches of rain would bring things to an absolute standstill. So flat, nowhere for the water to go. National disaster. Here, two inches in a day seems just about right.
