Bay Area Rain then Mud

This past weekend the Bay Area was hit with our first rain storm since December.  Then on Monday I was flying out of town on a business trip when I noticed the effect all that rain was having on the reservoirs in the Bay Area.  Thanks to my window seat and my latest travel accessor, an Sony A6000, I was able to create these photos showing how quickly the rain collects into the reservoirs.  Or maybe I should say how quickly the runoff from the rain (specifically mud here) collects into the reservoirs.  When I took this the rain had stopped about 5 hours prior and the previous 12 hours saw the heaviest storms hit this part of the Bay Area.  Always fun to document mother nature in action.  Too bad my return trip will land at night as I would love to have seen a comparison to 3 days later and how quickly the mud will settle.
