Crazy Weather

Wow - the weather has been crazy lately hasnt it?! Mother Nature is truly expressing her opinions of what humankind is doing to her planet.


The tsunami had very little effect on our areas of CA (not so in Crescent City) except for the Santa Cruz Harbor. AMAZING to watch what the power of the ocean can do.....the size of the waves wasnt what mattered....it was the strength and speed of that amazing wave action! According to the news, we have had rain 16 days this month....that is a lot of water. They
are having to let water out of reservoirs and all because their is not enough storage. So lets see....last year we were almost in a complete drought....this year we have too much water and the snow packs (which are apparently very deep and wet this year) havent even started to melt!
On the few days - or partial days - we cant even go to our favorite park for a walk cause it is closed because of the run offs.
My daughter posted this photo of her patrol car in Berkeley the day they had the 3" of hail!!
Tomorrow afternoon we are going to a wedding. For the sake of the wedding party, I hope the rain takes a break in the afternoon!!!
