Life in Northern California -- California's better half!

Last week's series of storms brought 3.95 inches of rain here, and this week's forecast predicts more. Today has been a steady misty drizzle - much milder than the weather last weekend which included high winds, hail, snow, and rain. There's finally some run-off into the river and Lake Mendocino is rising. Since it's been so darned dry, we'll take all we can get, but sure wish it had happened a bit earlier!

This has been an odd winter - dry and cold for the most part (very cold for here) but then a few days of mostly-promised precipitation. The other night the forecast was 100% chance of rain - we didn't get any. Not even cloudy! But lots of wind. This morning we are back to 24 degrees here at the house. But, rain forecast for next week. We would sure like to see that! Our home rain gauge is now at 14.88 inches for the season - about half of where we were last year.
