The first of our five storms moved onshore last night. After receiving 1" of rain overnight, there was a lull. Right now, and through tomorrow we will and are getting massive rains. Winds are steady at 40mph. After a slight repreive on Wednesday the next storm will be here with the largest of the 5 storms arriving on Thursday.
As expected, my neighbor Rod was out raking leaves in the rain. At least he wasn’t on his roof!
As you can see, the leaves are winning!
Overworked rain gutters
My Japanese rainchains can’t handle it
Rain from my patio roof
All in all, it’s wet ,cold and very windy. Cranking up the fireplace and making soup.
As far as the burn areas due to the wildfires, they are expecting 16" !! After 2" there are already mudslides. Oh yeah, and they have closed the beaches because of 25 foot surf. It’s gonna be a long week or two.
Oh Great! Thunder!! See ya!!
