The Petaluma River stays in place

The streets of Petaluma that front the river remained mostly dry on Sunday, 1/8/2017. Despite quite a drenching, the Petaluma river didn’t overflow into streets like C and H that dead end at the river.

People walking on the municipal dock, Petaluma River, 1/8/17 at 12:59 PM

If you are walking on the dock, unless you are 10 feet tall, your head is normally several feet below the railroad tracks. To see people walking on the dock while sitting in the Apple Box is very unusual!
