Pictures: Roseville Trails Flooded
Many Roseville residents were treated to nature's beauty yesterday afternoon following the torrential rains that soaked California this weekend.
Open space areas in Roseville which provide year-long recreation opportunities for residents and a habitat for a variety of wildlife burst alive with the rains. What last week were just trickling creeks, became surging rivers overflowing their banks and temporarily reclaiming trails making them impassable, unless you had a raft or were a fish. Mud puddles quickly turned into shimmering lakes surrounded by vibrant green grasses that became irresistible to the younger residents out on the prowl for fun. Bicyclists, hikers and those just grabbing a view were not deterred as everyone seemed to stuggle to contain their big smiles at the surrounding beauty.
The City of Roseville fared quite well from the rains, in no small part because of over $20 million of flood control improvements undertaken during the past two decades. In days and weeks leading up to the rains, city crews were out working near local creeks improving drainage routes. In addition, there were no power outages reported by Roseville Electric. Some Rocklin residents reported lengthy power outages from their PG&E service which was restored late afternoon.
As the rains relented, the warm sun reminded us why we love living in Northern California.
