Phooey. Since you posted that, I'm assuming you made it home safe, even if it may have been a bit of an adventure.

Time to keep a propane torch in the car? Seriously though, glad you made it home safe and sound.

I have thought about it...Full car cover might work.

21F and calm, I'm not going to look because it is just dark and the yard lights are out.

A little lightning, a lot of thunder. And they said it was just supposed to rain...

It was pouring rain along with thunder. Odd contrast with all the snow.

The dang Devil Wind (Santa Ana's) are back and blowing like the devil's breath.

It's 81 degrees out there and I suppose any minute there will be another fire on the news.

We have had one inch of rain since July and still none in the forecast.

It's finally above freezing. Icicles have come and mostly gone. I'm not looking forward to the freezing rain tonight. At least they are now saying 2-10 mm, not 5-10 mm.

Snow, snow and more snow. Forecast is for 12 inches by the time it's done tomorrow
