    Some rain for your trees would be a good thing.

    We did have a rather brisk rainy season July through early October; did get needed rain amounts. And just in time (by late June the trees were suffering; yellow falling leaves already).

    Yes! And hopefully it means "snow" here in the valley, at least once (during our winter rainy season). Usually disappears within 12 hours and zero shoveling.

    Warm, high 50's (about 8 - 10 degrees above normal) with heavy rain on the way. With the warm temps and heavy rain, some local rivers might be on flood watch. Not unusual for this time of year, esp. when the freezing level jumps up so high (7000') and any lower elevation snow melts off along with the rainfall.

    Hi Buttercup! Cold here but not too cold, 40's day, 30+/- nites. No deep freeze and good enough temps and rain lately to keep the fall crops going (carrots, collards, spinach). I need to do some painting in the garage but it's too darn cold out there! Thankfully no polar vortex on the horizon. I want it to snow over the holidays and then turn into Sring right after New Years

    Slushy in the prairies this afternoon. If it doesn't refreeze and turn the town into an ice rink we'll need to invest in bugwash.

    I spoke too soon. Another windstorm has come through. Power has been out for about two hours now.

    Wind. Rain. Very warm. Tomorrow's forecast: Very windy (75mph gusts forecast), very rainy, warm. Tomorrow's storm is expected to cause significant power outages, potential mudslides and localized flooding, both on rivers and coastal areas. If the storm comes in at high tide, there could be significant flooding because of storm surge. Sounds like Treb's gotten an early start on the power outages...hope it's not out for too long!

    Usually, in Sacramento, summer is the dry season and winter is the wet season. In winter, there's lots of rain or fog, and sunny days tend to be rare (and cold, at least by local standards).

    Last winter, Sacramento had wonderful weather (dry and unseasonably warm much of the time), but I couldn't help but feel worried, since if it went another year I knew I'd have to start letting the yard die.

    This winter, so far, it's looking like it may be making up for lost time. We just recently had a rare storm with heavy flooding (my own drive to and from work were worrisome, for instance, when I hit a huge amount of water at one point on the freeway, which I didn't see because of limited visibility - good thing I'd kept my distance from other cars), and now we're constantly being told that the storm coming tomorrow is supposed to make that look *mild.*

    Right now, it's calm and dry, but we too are expected to get 70+ mph gusts, and may get a third or more of average annual rainfall in this one storm.

    So we're waiting here to see what happens tomorrow. It will be interesting.

    Interesting indeed! Apparently the storm we're getting tomorrow (3rd storm of 3 this week...and the biggest) is starting down your way and working its way up the coast. We had 66 degrees recorded at SeaTac airport, the warmest Dec. temp ever recorded there. The skiers can't be very happy in my neck of the woods with the warmth, but I imagine they're ecstatic down in CA.

    Windy last night. Now 10 cm snow on ground & 15 to 20 cm coming today, thanks to New England's Nor'easter. -8C. Wind N 18km/hr

    Tuesday p.m.: Lightning, thunder, and rain. *Rare* for this area. Very nice!

    Yesterday: Mostly clear, and unusually warm - same for today. Current temperature (8:30 a.m.) is 52 F (feels warmer). Sunny, calm.

    Major windstorm overnight in the GNW. I haven't really heard many details but there've been a couple of deaths from falling trees. With the wind from the south as it was, we were pretty sheltered by tall trees on a hill in that direction. Power, for the most part, stayed on at my location but blinked a couple of times -- right near the end of the last episode of Gracepoint causing us to miss a couple of minutes while the TV and cable box rebooted.

    Spoiler: They did tweak the ending, just a little.

    Calm today, which seems weird after all the wild weather of the last few days...heck it's not even raining! Luckily we did not lose power either, though the wind didn't seem as bad as what was forecast, at least where I live.

    For clarity: For Monday's outage, we were at the alternate location near Port Townsend, WA. Yesterday we were in Everett. Now we're back to the other place. Just as well we were in Everett as the power was out here for several hours last night, according to the neighbor. She also said it was the most wind she's seen here in four or five years, and this is a particularly windy location.

    Warm - mid 50's F and raining heavily. Flood watches issued and avalanche warnings in the mountains - rising freezing levels combined with heavy rain make avalanches likely.
