Rain coming down in 10-gallon buckets in my part of northern California. Woke up at 4 a.m. because it sounded like someone had aimed a fire hose at my roof. It was so loud that it drowned out the TV set when I turned it on. But-- constant mantra from Californians this year -- we REALLY NEED the rain, so it's OK.

Same here. I just hope it is cold enough for the snow to stick in the mountains and not be too warm to cause runoffs and floods and then we have no water for summer.

Last week it was -48 and now it’s +1. Go figure!

That's considerably warmer - relatively speaking ... a heat wave!
Got my front door open today. Still freezing in the garage but that's OK.
Have food in the picnic cooler out there 'cuz no room in the freezer.
Forecast in low 50s F (10 to 11 C) on Wednesday. Then rain. Will drop to freezing at night. It's no big deal after watching videos of Buffalo NY.

Those Buffalo folks are tough as nails. I was reading some thread somewhere where there was another cold time in 77 or 78. Snow plows pulled kids for Halloween and the snow didn’t let up until well into the spring.

Plus Buffalo football fans are a unique brand of insane.

When we lived in Virgina, we snickered at how long the schools closed for very little snow . . . . fast forward some years and we knew a family who moved to Northwest Ohio from Buffalo. They too snickered at how quick we were to close the schools for what they considered a small amount of snow Smiley

The snow belt actually extends from the east side of Cleveland through Pennsylvannia all along Lake Erie up to Buffalo. Buffalo gets the worst of it though, being at the end of the lake.

We had the most rain on Saturday that California has ever received since the Gold Rush (1849). Yesterday a friend and I drove down then San Mateo Coast in Northern California. Lots of creeks were swollen and solid brown and many hillsides were sliding down into the roads below. We took a back road into the tiny town of Pescadaro and when we arrived, discovered the main road was so flooded that we had to take an alternative route home that took us over the river and through the woods and and down and through valleys and over small mountains.  Plus I've never seen the surf so high, and probably the first 100 feet of ocean was brown rather than blue because so much sediment had been dumped in and stirred up.

Still, saw the first California poppies of the year bloom . . . .

It's is raining in my area ... very unusual. Temp is 35F (2C) at night. This time of year is usually colder 20F (-6.6C) and was 51F (10.5C) two days ago. No snow cover. It is humid for this temperature - very chilly walking  because of it, the damp penetrates all insulating clothing.

I had some blueberries and blackberries that were on the edge of going bad (cuz I knew I wouldn't eat them in time) so I put them on the edge of the lawn near my patio door. In 5 minutes 2 squirrels showed up, took all the blueberries & buried them in the garden (it's not frozen). Then 5 birds took the blackberries and went off to their winter nests in the evergreens making 3 trips to gather it all. Not usual behaviour at this time of year. At least they took advantage of the fruit. I'm happy about that.

Strange bright light in the sky which has turned an inexplicable shade of blue. Perhaps the big rains are over for now in Northern California. I read somewhere that we received something like 300 trillion gallons of rain during the deluge.

Now everything in my garden is on steroids as well as the weeds, alas. But SO green and the Berkeley/Oakland hills look like they have been upholstered in green velvet.

Pushing towards 100F here today! Hitting the hottest part of summer! Will be in the high 90Fs all week.

(And yes, we use celsius here, I just convert! My car said 39C (102F) at lunchtime!).

I prefer winter, but only because I’ve only ever experienced a SW Aussie one  Cool

Thinking of all our Texas Dishers and hoping they are okay. That's one particularly nasty ice storm going on down there.
