there was a huge storm that rolled through on New Year’s Eve which dumped an incredible amount of rain, caused a lot of flooding with winds that added damage for good measure. The only good thing that came out of it, as I mentioned before, was the lack of fireworks.
There was another “bomb cyclone” as it is being called as part of an atmospheric river predicted to hit the area starting about 1000 this morning. All my initial plans became OBE due to weather concerns. Naturally, the roads were clear, there wasn’t any rain, and I wondered. Ran errands for most of the day, finally getting back home just before 1600.
And by 1700 the storm had rolled into my area. Both the wind and driving rain seem a lot stronger than last weekend. Slight lull after the first few hours, but we are back at driving rain with winds continually changing directions. Glad to be tucked up in my cozy chair.
I have been making steady progress on the Fox&Rabbit 2023 Royal Gardens Mastery SAL. After 4 days of stitching, my 3900 stitches puts me at 42% complete…
Over here they were saying this morning would be light rain off and on but not to be fooled: it’s tonight through tomorrow that’s going to be bad. And it is tonight, it is really bad out there.
I offered my daughter to stay here if her lights go out and she told me, well, actually, I’m going out in it to pick a friend up from the airport.
I don’t usually hover and ask the kids to tell me when they get home, but this time I’m hoping to hear when she does. Oh and: this storm is supposed to be a 2, Monday’s is supposed to be a 4. But right now the tide is coming in and backing up the creeks, so that’s fun enough.
I had a doctor appointment in San Carlos for tomorrow but I bailed because as I told them, I’m not sure I’ll be able to get there past the road closures. For that matter, I’m not sure the doctor will, either.
and I will believe we are done with the rain about the time that I leave for Asia next Oct
