Up here in Santa Cruz it started last night. Today we got hit really hard. We’re hoping it will move south on Monday.
It’s really a downpour....lots of standing water on the roads.

Oh course I would not include Calif. freepers. I would assume that they would know how to survive and or get out of Dodge when the big one comes.

We live in the San Bernardino mountains and just had one like this last weekend, but since the ground is no longer frozen, the snow will only stick to the 3 foot drifts leftover from the big one back in Feb. The doppler right now shows the rain just beginning to hit up near Santa Barbara. The cold wind has been blowing hard all day bringing beautiful and unusual cloud formations. Time to bring the snowblower to the front door!!

Not the sign of a future earthquake we all hope.

Ah,....a picture...thanks....

It has lightened up after a rather dark morning...

I watered my rose bed heavily yesterday,...I am sure that had something to do with this...they were getting really thirsty.

Washed my dirty car too.

I don’t think we get much down here but the 1 or 2 inches on the San Bernandino Mountains is likely gonna cause someone problems...

We had the dark and gloomy going on yesterday and then nothing ‘til this morning.

I was worried I’d lose a lot of blossoms on the fruit trees,, so far so good.. This is likely one of the last spring impulses of moisture.

The truck is waiting a wash until later this week.. we could get dribbled on again midweek here in the bay area. maybe ..

You can have it.. Looks like we will be clear for a little bit and then some more after tonight or tomorrow.

I am so glad I pulled my crop of weeds when I did last month

I’m freezing my buns off here near Sacramento. Who turned off Spring. Winter is in full force and my convertible is calling my name.

I want warmth. I want Spring back!

I just drove back to Ventura down from San Luis Obispo - sense of foreboding (and wind) all the way. Figures I’d pick this weekend for a ramble up the coast!

When the big earthquake hits San Francisco, you will see just as many numb, dumb, confused looks on people’s faces as you saw with Katrina. They statement of the day will be, “I didn’t know that was going to happen. If I knew that was going to happen I NEVER would have lived here”.

It is pure denial, nothing else. I spent most of the last 12 years in San Francisco because I could not resist the urge, as a Caltrans engineer, to work on the area’s new bridges. I feel this is a golden age of bridge building for us, and I had to be a part of it.

I lived right in San Francisco and I was constantly thinking about the next big earthquake. I never felt comfortable living in San Francisco and knowing that local Armageddon could strike at any time without warning.

I used to sit in traffic jams on the Bay Bridge and think, if the quake hit right this instant, should I stay in my car, try to drive off if possible, or just run along the sidewalk and stand at one of the towers, which would be the safest place if any pieces of the deck broke free or if a cable broke (neither prospects likely, of course).

I am NOT looking forward to the big earthquake and I pray it does not come in my lifetime. I know too many people there to want to see them suffer through the aftermath.

At the same time, they live there by choice and have accepted the risk, even as they deny the risk or pretend it can’t happen. By being there, they have accepted the risk.

This I don’t want to see.

Sorry.....we will try to be a tad more gentle next time. I have family in Arrroyo Grande (midcoast), Santa Barbara area, Rancho Cucamonga and several surrounding cities, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino.

Stay safe everyone.....hope those that need the water are able to capture it.
