Rain News In Roseville CA Area
I’m guessing the biggest topic on many of our minds is all the rain we’ve been getting, the damage it has caused, and is there any good news in the midst of all this. And YES, there is definitely GOOD rain news in Roseville CA area!
According to ABC10 News, “The precipitation is no doubt helping California in terms of drought. The latest drought monitor, released Thursday, shows nowhere in California under exceptional drought conditions for the first time since last May!” And that doesn’t even include any rain from Thursday or Friday. Not to mention that we are getting even more rain on Monday and Tuesday. So great news drought-wise.
Area-wise, as most of us know, it has caused flooding – including for our neighbors south of Sacramento and in the Bay area.
We’ve had some power outages, though I believe most have been fairly short. And, as I mentioned, more rain to come. Here are storm resources for cities in our immediate area along with the reminder from many of the cities to keep our storm drains free of leaves:
- Placer Emergency Services and Placer Alert (Click on this for a LONG list of great info but to me, most important, make sure you are signed up for Placer Alert to be notified of ANY area emergency.
- Roseville – Storm update info
- Roseville – Winter storm information
- Rocklin – Storm Readiness info
- Lincoln – To report street flooding, call Public Works at 916-434-2450 (M-F from 8AM-5PM) or the Lincoln Police Department after hours and weekends at 916-645-4040.
- Citrus Heights – Report all IMMEDIATE storm and street related concerns, including clogged storm drains, to General Services at 916-727-4770. (If calling after hours, follow the voicemail prompts).
And for all of the above, if it is a real emergency – CALL 911 😀
Per the California Department of Water Resources –
“We are in the middle of a flood emergency and also in the middle of a drought emergency. This is an extreme weather event and we’re moving from extreme drought to extreme flood. What that means is a lot of our trees are stressed, after three years of intensive drought, the ground is saturated and there is significant chance of downed trees that will create significant problems. Potentially flooding problems, potentially power problems. That is really the signature of this particular event.” – DWR Director Nemeth
Hmmmm – I’m wondering if that’s what happened to this poor tree to make it lean over so much?

Roseville CA News
Have you ever heard of Ike’s Love & Sandwiches – this sandwich chain (which started in the Bay area) has two sites and is now adding a Roseville site. growing sandwich chain with roots in the Bay Area is planning to add a third local site (they have 80 all over the Western U.S.), which will be in Roseville. Their new restaurant will be in the Ridge at Creekside shopping center, 1132 Galleria Blvd., Suite 120, Roseville, along with Mimi’s Cafe, AT&T, Chipotles and many others (you can tell my faves 😀 ) and also an old fave that is possibly leaving – Bed Bath and Beyond – (Rumors of their going out of business are continuing.)
Sad news, per the Sacramento Business Journal. It looks like Things Remembered is going to be closing all their stores, including their Roseville Galleria store.
They also shared that Elk Grove-based dessert eatery “‘Lil’ Hotties Mini Donuts” is going to be opening in the Westfield Galleria at Roseville – maybe by January 15. Their cute little donuts can be eaten as is or enjoyed with ice cream and various toppings, along with a cup of coffee from Temple Coffee Roasters. With all the donut-lovers in our area, I suspect they will be very popular. AND they are hiring.
