  • The scene in downtown Healdsburg early this morning was a wet one and getting wetter.

There was so much hype surrounding the coming storm that doubters started to grouse that it wouldn't deliver. The winds weren't as strong as predicted but it turned out to be every bit as wet as predicted.

The rain started falling Wednesday afternoon and grew in intensity all night. We're at five inches and counting in the West County. Power was out in pockets of the West County and Santa Rosa Thursday morning and schools closed county-wide. Healdsburg's Foss Creek spilled its banks and caused widespread flooding and road closures. Meanwhile, we're keeping and eye on the Russian River. And rain is still falling.

How are you holding up? Got a storm story to share? Let us know in the comments below.
