We've had 3 days of sun. I've almost finished the installation of the walkway in the garden area of the back yard.

Here We Go Again

Oh That Damn Rain
OK, I'm sick of rain. If you follow National News, California has washed into the ocean.
Once again the Atmospheric River is bearing down on us. Here in beautiful downtown (and wet) Jackson, it's due to start raining, again, about 2pm. It's really sad when you're elated about being able to run to the supermarket without getting soaked, like I did this morning. And yes, I was elated.
Woman who checked me out said they haven't had electricity for about 3 weeks and they were down to the last 2 gallons of gas for their generator. They were finally able to dig out and get to town this morning.
We're fortunate that our house is above the flood plain. We used to live upcountry. Glad I live in town now.
Remember I mentioned the apartments around the corner that flooded a while back. I noticed all the cars are parked on the street and not in the parking lot this morning.
You've got to feel for those that are in the flood plain. Here's a couple photo's I picked up off the net.
No matter how many times you tell them that cars do not run under water, they still try. I know this from personal experience.
Oh, and let us not forget the mud slides that come with a bunch of rain.
The picture above is in Plumas County. About a 3 hour drive North of Sacramento.
See, an SUV submarine.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
OK, we've been hit hard with the rain and snow.
Jackson's elevation is 1200 ft. above sea level.
In California you measure the amount of snow you'll get by the elevation you're standing at.
My son Ken lives at 3200 ft. He got about a foot, as you can see in the photo below on 2/27/2023.
