It's 27F here and we had a bit of snow this morning. Not enough to stick or cause any problems. People here are as good with snow as southern Californians are with rain

Although I'm in the north west of England and despite the heavy rainfall, we are lucky not to have been affected by the horrendous floods that have struck Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria. Some of those places have been really badly hit, some repeatedly.
I have been watching your flooding news closely. We have had a nasty edition of flooding in the Midwest here along the Mississippi River. Some pictures have shown where just a small peak of a two story home is showing. Has the Lakes District been hit again?

I woke up to 3F weather this morning. Right now it is up to 23F. I am still not going out. The wind is going at a good clip. And when I am on my scooter, riding right into the wind, it feels twice as cold.

I don't think I've ever seen it rain as hard as it did this morning, complete with thunder, lightening and knocked out internet. We measured 2.6 inches just this morning. So far, in just two days we've had 4.2.
How are you doing over there Cheryl?

Holy buckets of rain and upside down rain! Haven't seen it come down like it is now in a long time. Thundering here, too. I'm kind of nervous about picking Tyler up from school, even though it's only 1/2 mile and a neighborhood school. Thank goodness I don't have to drive out in town to get him. Our cell phone service for the whole valley has been out all day and still isn't working, not sure if it's rain related but probably is.

It just quit raining, the sun came out, and the birds are back at the bird feeder. I feel better about going out to get Tyler now.

It rained like crazy, then it quit and the sun came out. Then is clouded up and rained like crazy again. It's stopped now, but still threatening.

Went up to -2C (29F) and very sunny. Everything was shiny and reflecting.

This is the best rain gauge I've ever seen. You can see it from our front door without getting wet. This was taken at 4.40pm today and there's more to come. Just in case anyone wonders why we're so excited, in two days we now have 80% of the total rainfall we had in 2015.

K, no flooding or slides near you then? I really should call my mother!

There was a slide on the coast highway north of here were we had the recent fire at Solimar beach. One of my sons was delayed there yesterday traveling back from Santa Barbara on business.
