Babe has got it right!
We are expecting record amounts tonight, tomorrow and into the middle of the week. Now don't laugh, but here it's a big deal. 6" - 8" or more of snow down to 4000 ft and 2" - 3" of rain in the inland valleys (Babe and I) and on the coast, too. Here, from the coast to the mountains is 20 miles or less as the crow flies. Not like when I lived in the upper midwest, but it's the best we can do around here.
