Today was supposed to be the one day this week that wasn’t forecast for rain, but I just checked the forecast and the sun with some clouds has been replaced with … yup, more rain. Ah, well, it was a hoped for break that may not happen.
As it goes, though, I can see some blue sky out the back window and it’s not raining at this very moment. It’s been an extremely damp week, though. Bits of San Francisco have received 25% of their average annual rainfall. The Sierra snowpack (which is critical for water in this area) doubled in the last week. There are bad mudslides down south. Airports have been shut down. An apartment is falling off an eroding cliff.
And there are 4 more days of rain forecast. On one level it’s good as we are in the middle of a 3 year drought. We’ll need more rain, but it would be nice to have a few days of dryness.
