Recalling back to December 1996, there was a heavy snow over the hills and up to the top of the Cosumnes River watershed.

Just before New Year’s Day it began to rain — it was called a “Pineapple Express” storm. The snow was pounded by warm rain and the Cosumnes River levees were overwhelmed by a record flow. So many transportation routes were flooded. As levees broke, people were stranded. One family member might have been at work, another at school and another at home. There was limited access to many areas of southern Sacramento County.
