Re: Crazy weather /flooding

All houses, or most, have downspouts here too, but they usually run to the  
foundation.  With the drought spells, there are a lot of foundation  
problems.....so folks like to have the water around the foundation to keep it  from 
cracking.  Practically every house has plants around the house, since  the 
"foundation" needs to be watered during droughts, so it is good soil, and  suitable 
for planting.

It's the  same here with regards to the roads. And the erosion downstream 
from all  of the storm drains is awful. Most homes are built with downspout 
drains  that pipe into the street instead of retaining water on the 
property - or  at least that's the common solution offered by most 
"landscapers" (i.e.,  mow blow and go guys) .
