Rainy and cold and windy in the SF Bay Area. I can't remember our last sunny day. We had big storms here a few weeks ago with hurricane force winds, and it blew down a huge section of our fence. We are at the bottom of a hill, so the water just sits there before slowly drying up. It will be a month before we can repair the fence, IF it stops raining soon!

It's sunny and 40!!!! Warmest it's been in weeks..... and weeks... and weeks.
Supposed to rain tomorrow, but then drop back below zero by tuesday night.
Alix could you please keep it up there? Not forever, just til I warm up from the last arctic blast!

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

The sun was out ALL day! We are still in shock! And apparently it's supposed to be sunny all day tomorrow too! YAY!

suzi, no offence but if I can get rid of this weather its GOING! And I suspect you have the weather we have had for a few weeks now. Lovely and warm. Now we're in for it.

We have had rain for so long here in the Sacramento area that I think I am getting web feet...
At least every day for over two weeks..kinda of a rare thing to go so long without sunshine. When the sun does come out we all will wonder what the heck that big shiny thing in the sky is.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Tremendous thunder storms here - I think we've had 2-3" just today. But, we don't have the hard luck that our neighbors an hour up the road have... I heard on the radio that PCH (highway 1 near Malibu) is again in trouble. The storm hit so hard and with such force, that they believe they broke a water main. Looks like no traveling for a few months there. sheesh!

Smile 95F (35C) and really hot

going up in the next couple of days to over 100F, have had the ducted aircon on all day, sticky and humid, good drying weather for the washing. Beats the last few weeks of rain and cooler temps though.
