They're saying it might snow here Sunday night or Monday. That'll be fun -- hasn't snowed in a couple years.

Of course if the temps are 36° it won't stick.

It actually snowed Thursday night, and it stuck.  About an inch. Rolling Eyes   Temps have stayed below freezing for a couple days now.

Still, it's very pretty and the views of the mountains have been stunning.

We haven't had a frost yet, but it's quite cold today and the forecast is for freezing tonight.

No mountains here - the pictures make me a little bit jealous.

We had some snow here, but it melted. In 2005.
Although it snows here on rare occasion, that was the first time I had seen it in the county and I've been here for a very long time.
Correction: That was the second time I'd seen snow here. The first time was in January 2001, right after we moved in here.

I can live quite nicely without snow.

It's been a dry month so far, and we average 2.5 inches in December. Hope it picks up.

Woke up early this morning. Had a 3.9 quake five miles away. Not a big one, but when the epicenter is that close they are very noisy.

Just had another little quake, 3.0, in the same spot. I hope that's it for a while.
That is very near the epicenter of a large quake we had in 2003. That one was the most destructive U.S. quake since 1994. Besides the damage, it killed two women.
Shit!

The 3.9 quake has been revised to 4.0. Between the two quakes that I felt, there were five more that I didn't notice, ranging from 1.3 to 2.6.
Seismologists say that there's only a five percent chance of the small quakes being a sign of a larger quake within the next week. After recent events, I no longer feel secure with small probabilities.

When we had the large quake in 2003, there were hundreds of smaller quakes in the following two weeks. At least a hundred of them were in the range 3.5 to 4.5. The earth and I were both shakier than normal during that time.

So much for not having a frost. It dropped noticeably below freezing last night, and isn't forecast to get back above freezing until sometime Saturday. And it's supposed to snow Friday night. Terrific.

On the bright side, no earthquakes.

That's just too cold, guys. It used to get down to about twenty here in the winter, but we haven't had a night at 32 or below in a couple of years.

We got an inch of rain yesterday, so we're still on track to get a normal rainfall for the season. That would be two years in a row. Whoopee.

Well it's about 26F now, 5:30pm, but supposed to gradually warm up from here, reaching freezing by 8-9 tomorrow morning, and into the 50s by Sunday. So just two really cold days and nights, this go round.

My daughter loves Brooklyn, but she hates the winters. She's looking forward to spending a few days here. It may not be very sunny, but at least it's not freezing.

Generally, January is the coldest month and February the snowiest, and you used to be able to count on a couple of really cold weeks in January and at least one good blizzard with 6"+ of snow, probably in February. But with climate change screwing things up, it's not so predictable now.

Last night, we had our first freezing temperature in a long time. It got down to 31.7.

Why do I get the feeling that you don't really mean that?

The local TV weather guesser predicts five inches of rain between this afternoon and Sunday.

We had snow on NYD, first time in 67 years.  It wasn't very much, but since temps are expected to stay below freezing all this week, it's still on the ground.

Nothing like the Midwest though.
Quote :
Heavy snow expected in the Sierra could snarl travel on Donner Pass. Those traveling on I-80 from Sacramento to Reno and northern Nevada could run into travel restrictions or closures.
Sounds like a nice place for a picnic.

Haven't had snow here for several years. But I can live without it.
I don't like rain, either, but it's a necessity.
Right now it is wet - but ugly:

I'm seeing some green in that picture, instead of brown brown brown.

Under normal conditions, the green you see would be two feet high at this time of year, rather than just a few inches.

Moving right along, rain-wise. We've had an inch of rain so far today. A few more years like this and I can wash my car. Okay, I never wash my car, but you get my point.

Well, we got an inch of rain on Wednesday through noon Thursday, which puts us at normal for this time of year. Today it is perfectly clear and sunny, but they are predicting between four and seven inches of rain in the next week. They have been wrong before, of course. They are also predicting ten to fifteen feet on snow in the Sierras. That would be a great thing. We have had little snow pack the past couple of years.

Even with last year's average rainfall, we are still in an area classified as Exceptional drought. The chart used to go only to Extreme, but they had to add Exceptional for this drought. I understand that if they have to add another classification, it will be Holyfuckingshit.

Been raining all day. Now the lights have blinked a couple of times. Guess the power is about to go out. Shit!
