"Wintry mix," according to the The Weather Channel. Yuck! No love from Mother Nature this year.

LOL! You're a sweetheart, Shannon! Unfortunately, 'wintry mix' is synonymous with 'ice storm' around here! Either way, I'll dig out the old Bauer skates and take a shot at the pond!

Sweetheart!?!?! That was malice at it's worst!!! "ice skating anyone?" Damp's on deck!!!! No, really, hope the storm is not too bad. I will repeat myself and state if there is an ice storm, I pray it just freezes my doors shut so I have an excuse to not leave the house!!!

It has been very rainy here in California for the past two days. We have had some minor localized flooding and mudslides in my area. The ranger station that I work at has had 3 buildings and the parking lot flooded. I had a few inches of water in front of my house (see attached pictures) But all in all we are OK. People down in the Sacramento Valley are having a worse time.

Our back yard looked like a lake this morning and I expected to see the fish out of the pond at any time. It is running over the edge and onto the yard. My sons put a drain through the back, side and out the front yard so it will soon drain out into the street. We have had 3 1/2 " in the last 24 hours. then the sun came out and we had a nice day. My son who lives in Roseville Ca. about 5 miles from us has 2 " of water on his first floor and office. He has a tri-level home. This is the third time it has happened. The rain will be back sometime tonight and last unti. Tuesday morning. Enough is enough !!!
