Well, the storm hit down here around 4 and BOY is it a doozie!
Pouring rain without any stopping. I LOVE it!!!

My mom in Santa Barbara said they started at 10am and already got 2.72" at their house!

Now, if it would only chill down a bit...it's only 49 right now.

In Denmark (where I'm from) the weather is pretty sad right now. It's not snowing but it's very cold. I'm looking forward to summer.

Anybody need any snow? I have some that I will send to you if you want it. We have got 1-2 feet here in the valley and 2-4 feet on the Sierra Crest since yesterday. Today has been a day of snow: blowing and drifting all over the place. Cars have been spinning out and slip sliding all over the roads. I just don't understand why folks just don't stay home on days like this. Tomorrow is going to bring another 6-12 inches of snow. What concerns me is the Nat'l Weather Service is saying that one of the storms next week is going to bring rain. That is all we need is rain on top of all this snow.

Well, all I can say is Mother Nature has a sense of humor. A few days ago we were freezing our baguettes off (temps were 8F and windy). Today it has been very gloomy with rain and lots of wind again. The "funny" part here is that instead of going down, the temperature has been going up steadily...even after dark. It's 53F outside right now. Bizarre.

A bit like yesterday with some variation. Not so gloomy and had a little sunshine today. That was nice. 'Cept Mother Nature has ramped the temperature and the wind up. By the time I got up this morning, it was already 66F. Got to about 70F today. The winds have been pretty high all day long. I would've sworn I saw Dorothy and Toto fly by my window a few minutes ago. Just plain weird here for the time of the year. I'll take it, though, since it keeps the utility bills down.
