Interesting that the earlier weather report had maybe a 1/4” of rain at most with no flash flooding.

Now it is up to over and inch of rain with flooding. The clowns are forcasting global warming and yet the weather people cannot get the weather straight within 12 hours. Give me a break.

We are looking at overnight lows of 31 and showers up here on Thursday.

I saw snow every now and then as a kid in LA’s foothills, but never in Sacramento these past 14 years. I can’t wait to hear what the global warmists say about that if we do get snow this week.

The trouble is, climate change is the norm.

Ultimately I think their goal is to reduce the human population by a factor of 100 or more.

We had a nice steady rain here in Eagle Rock all evening. It has let up now...a nice soaking type rain. Hopefully the burn areas didn’t have any problems.
