The winds ended up with gusts in the 50 mph range, not 30's. Unfortunately, Krypto had to go out, and when he was doing what he needed to, a tree came down pretty close by. It was *loud,* and scared him.
The rain is being compared to hurricane weather rain. I wouldn't know that, but that's what they described Northern California weather as yesterday on national news. I was surprised that we were even on national news.
I do know that we had to shout to hear one another for a while, and forget talking between rooms, even ones without walls.
I couldn't see the road from my camera screen. The rain was coming down so hard that it was a solid sheet of water.
Then, just now, it stopped and my ears are ringing, of all things, from the quiet.
Dh is rushing to fill the generator with the last of the gas, and put a can of heater fuel in the heater tank, while he can. (We are supposedly scheduled for a delivery, but the time frame was last Wednesday to tomorrow. That may not be possible if roads are impassable, trees are down on roads and highways, etc.)
Our temperatures stayed steady throughout the storm. It was 51 - 54 day and night, sometimes the higher number being at night. Looking at the thermometer, it's still 51 out as I type.
Well, that's all from here. Soggy is all. I don't think that much rain can soak in, it's mostly runoff at this point, but, the ground is still wet, and this is bound to have helped the firemen - a lot - with the forest fires.
I hope to get gasoline soon, so that I cont. to have power. A lot of people don't right now.
Have a good night!
