Climate Change and Roads

Turns out it takes very little extra rain to knock out large portions of the road network -- and some areas can be completely cut off by it.  Yet another way in which we are fucked, but some people are enormously more fucked than others.  It's not enough to live on a hill, although that is advisable to minimize flood risks.  You'll still get stranded if all the roads around you flood.  That has actually happened to us a few times.
