Rain and wind here in the valley SierraCook. It will improve and then rain again Thursday. It is in the high 40's now but for me that is cold.

Something like 8 - 12 inches of white stuff o nthe ground too.

BigDog, this might sum it up a little nicely for you...

Wow!! We are having a heat wave. The current temperature is 51 degrees F. outside. It not has not been that warm for ages!! The skies are cloudy and sprinkling rain here and there. By the snowline on the nearby peaks it looks like the snow level was about 7,000 ft. This picture is taken from the back alley that runs behind my house and into the highway that you see in the picture.

So much for a White Christmas! The jet stream is heading north bringing warm temps with it. I guess I can't really complain, it sure beats the massive ice storm that we had last year!
