    it isn't the rain that sucks, it's that guys in cages nearly hit us when we cross the street at cross walks when it's sunny and bright, let alone when there's rain hampering their traction and vision.

    It rained heavy here for what seemed like 2 or 3 weeks straight. I was contemplating putting a clothes line across my cubical. I'm enjoying the sunshine now.:nod

    West
    A potent Pacific low and associated cold front will punish the West Coast tonight and tomorrow, bringing with it significant rainfall and high winds. Gale warnings are currently in effect along the West Coast from central California to Washington State. Mariners should try and stay off the water through the weekend if possible. The last significant rainfall for San Francisco was back on May 21st and it looks as though the dry streak will come to an end Thursday. In fact, the rain will likely continue into the weekend. Both the Cascades and Sierra will get in the action tomorrow as well. Winter storm watches are in effect for much of the Sierra. Over a foot of snow will likely be on the ground (above 6,000 feet) by late Friday.

    I'll let you know later. First rain of the season...roads are slick. So if I can keep from being the puck in the commuting hockey game, and can keep from being blown off the bridge into the mud, it should be okay.

    Yeah, but we like to share.
    I'm feeling more Oregonian everyday. I just got done mowing the yards in light rain.
    Now if I could just get rid of this armpit mold....

    My commute thru the mountains was just light rain this AM. A number of the 10/15MPH switch backs were solid wet pine needles and leaves:arg ........made for some very slow go'n. A few more big rains and the roads will be mucho better.

    Feel sorry for the students this Sat. They almost never bring rain gear like we tell them to so they never look to happy after 4 hrs in wet Levis:huh

    We spent the night babysitting telephone pole fires all over the lovely and cultured 'burb of San Leandro. They look like big ass roman candles in the night sky. Very pretty. 'Course the citizens all come out, stand under the dangling, live, arcing wires and demand that we fix the power to their house (so they can watch 3AM infomercials). After we advise them that they could die if that arcing, 10,000 volt wire drops on their head, or anywhere close to them on the ground, and we would really appreciate it if they would move, we remind them of those cool SBC adds showing stylishly rugged men and women working diligently in rain, sleet and dark of night to bring them their power 24/7 and provide them with the phone number to call. After they bitch us out and we thank them we respond to the next telephone pole fire and repeat the process. It’s a living. I think I’ll take a little nappy time now…

    I would normally agree but I had been up for 28 hours when I posted. So sleep was imperative. Now that I am rested drinking is imperative. Cheers! :beer
