40 mph winds!! Heavy rains!! The storm door, she's a open

Californians are a spoiled lot, I know. One good blow a year and we get all giddy about it. This would be just another yawner to you midwest boys but here in the land of "Me" ( reference to the California trait of the modern yuppie to be so completely self involved that the delaying of getting to work by 5 minutes is considered a personal crisis) this is a life halting act of God affraid People will still drive 75 mph and smashed cars will litter the highways today, power will go out putting a halt to personal entertainment and people all across the state will stare at the walls unsure of what to do now Neutral lol! Water will fill the streets and expensive shoes will be ruined, stirring a rash of lawsuits over the monetary and psychological damages. Someone will sue God for mismanaging a natural resource. Hungry people will pour into Starbucks for coffee and muffins only to find that it takes electricity to make double decaf frappathingos too, and the free Wifi won't work either Sad The red cross will be summoned to bring iced coffee, croissants and charged ipods. The Governator will declare a state of exasperation.

I'm going to go for a walk, I like it and we need the rain Cool

I suspect this will turn into a blizzard for us in a few days.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Puff Daddy.

BUT, consider this,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the rain will muddy up that Watt Avenue riffle and put down the steelhead.

Something spiritual about being IN the river during a rain storm, rightfully questioning your lack of sanity, freezing your ass off.

Set the hook,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,pass the Brothers!

I don't have to go to such extremes to bring my sanity into question Laughing

The river's been too low and clear, poor fishing. This shot of water should make things better.

Standing midstream passing the Brothers is almost as good as the fishing Cool

Sierra foothills, 100 miles south of Puff Daddy, holding it's own.

Wife is getting a little anxious. Once I reminded her that we survived quite a few backpack trips and still have the gear, she settled down. They weren't all good weather summer jaunts either.

Imported peanut butter cookies and Montana smoked Kokanee will sustain us if need be. Abominable snowman protection provided by faithful Border Collie, Ty.

Hunker down and Sleep through it.

flower 's to come shortly.

Stay warm and safe all.

The worst is past us (maybe not Tom's place yet) and the winds hit near 60 mph. Never lost power here, but a pine tree went down and smashed a car parked next to mine, missing mine by only a few feet. Another tree right next to my back door, about 60 foot tall, is being topped right now. The ground all around it is moving as the thing sways, pretty ugly.

Now the flooding begins Neutral

Make sure your tobacco cellar is battened down, or move it to high ground, and don't use your Dunhills for bailing!

No worries Showme, I'm smoking my Dunhill as I sit here trying to look professorial as I make a show of watching the tree guy ["Careful there, watchout for that doohickey over there"]

2.9 inches of rain in downtown Sacramento today. A good heavy rain for us is like half an inch.

We were without power until about 3:45. It was out before I woke up this morning. Still have clocks to reset.

No TV, no heat (need electricity to spin the fan), no computer. The kids were beside themselves Laughing.

We ran a few errands.

On the other hand, I wasn't able to make anything fun for dinner. Nor was I able to spend any time in the shop. I didn't want to open the fridge or freezer and let out the cold. Not sure what we're eating tonight. Probably going to be lazy and go out.

Tony,

Thanks for your concern. It looks like this one has passed. I hear more is coming throughout the week. PD was right,,,,,,,,,,,,,,we here in Calisillyland don't really know what real weather is about. Guys in the midwest and east coast would wear short sleeves here and laugh at us,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,rightfully.

How high's the water Momma,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,she said it's three feet high and risin.

J. Cash, RIP.

To give you an idea of how mild our climate is, rain subsided so I just went out to check on my truck since I parked it around the corner. I wore sandals and pajamas, no coat, was out for about 10 minutes, not at all cold. Kind of mild and muggy actually, very nice out Cool

PD,

I hope that all you guys out there on the west coast are all right. I was watching it on the television and it looked pretty nasty out here. A lot of smashed cars.

lol! Not into the colonel, eh? Funny, but when my kids were little I could spend twice as much on pizza or some such thing and they wouldn't even blink, but a bucket of the colonels with mashed potatoes and gravy, the little buggers would start squealing with delight like it was Christmas or something Laughing

Trans-fats or stupid people: the real danger to your health?

Reading the comments about KFC brought to mind an article I read recently, and since thread evolution and poking fun at Nannie Nazis are accepted practice here, I thought I'd share... http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,199734,00.html


"Itís unfortunate that KFC has to waste its time and money defending itself from CSPIís groundless lawsuit. On the other hand, KFC has a good opportunity to expose not only the trans fat myth but also CSPIís antics in a court of law. Letís hope KFC doesnít chicken out."
