We got a lot of rain last night and this morning, probably over 3".  Last night around 11:30 my wife woke me up and said the t.v. news folks said that a tornado was headed our way.  We rousted the girls from their beds and all went into an interior room for the next few minutes.  It did not hit us but a few miles away there was significant damage.

The roof of the Kathleen Middle School was ripped off.  Several of JMoore's (John) neighbors had some property damage.  There were parts of barns and pool awnings in our weedy hay field, which is near John's.

Late this week we had a gully washer with over 3" of rain. We didn't get as much damage as was predicted, mostly mild power outages fixed within a day. But yesterday was just a perfect work day. Temp was 32 at day break. Bright sunshine all day and the high hit around 62. Today looks to be a little less. It is going to be overcast and barely make the mod-fifties. We should have some rain coming in for the second half of the day. I need to see how much I can get done.

We hard rain and bad bad wind. I have no idea how much rain we got,but that wind was bad. I was without power for 32 hours. The problem must of been down at the end of the road,a dead end road. The town maintained road is fine,but someone put a small building in and put power to it. I did not bother going down there in the dark. Can get kinda greasy down there. Once we waited 3 days for the power company to cut a 6 inch dead fir off the line. Took 15 minutes for them to drive up and reset the breaker at the end of the road.
We was lucky on getting power back. I read in the paper yesterday it could be days before power is restored.

51 and rain. Not sure how I feel about that. I was gonna work today, but didn't really want to. If it was light mist, I could have worked in it, and pretended I was on a pleasure hike in the woods. Would have been a nice fall day. It's still a nice fall day, but too wet for my gear, so I guess I'll be spending quality time with the cat today. Might open my new bottle of rye later. Yesterday I decreed the opening of drinking season. That starts when the weather gets nice, and will end some time next year; maybe April.

We missed the heavir winds, but still 20 mph or so. It took the roof off the IGA in Mars Hill I heard. That is not 10 miles from here. I'd say we had less than an inch, it was showery and not steady. Glad everyone is safe. ;)

Looking at heavy rain moving into the state this morning.  We don't need it.  Here it comes!

Nice morning yesterday but cloudy, no real wind. Started raining at 11am and by 3pm I was wet enough to call it a day. It finally stopped around dark, too late to go back to work.
 Today is cloudy and cool, expecting some rain mid-week, the just cool and clear fall temps. Hopefully I get another good working weekend coming up. Much to do.

I think the roof was steel nailed over shingles. It lifted the steel. So not that bad a deal. Mother was over there today and everything seemed to be back in place.
Move'n on.

A nice warm day,even if I was working. I took some pallets outside and was up against the building. I bet it was 70 there,move 10 feet from the building and the temp dropped 10.

Rain rain snow rain. That has been our weather for the last 2+ weeks. Temps in the 30s and 40s and double digit rainfall in the last two weeks. Dont walk off the gravel driveway or the sod will give way and you will be to your knees in the mud. Lots of grain crops rotting in the field, mud everywhere, once again fall tillage isn't going to happen, cover crops aren't going in, same story the last few years.

Was real windy on Monday, nothing yesterday or today but PG&E is planning on another "safety" power shutoff for an area further up in the Sierras.  

Brought my little genny down to run my refrigerator if needed.  The only thing I could find on my fridge is 5.2 amps!  I guess those new linear compressors don't pull too much - hoping my 800watt generator can handle it.

They cleaned up that three that fell on that blue car in the photo I posted on the 17th.

Here is a shot of the car:

We have been kinda wet here. But has not been that cold. I have seen rain and wind this time of year and I can't put on enough clothes to be warm. A sweatshirt is almost too much. That will be a changing any day.

Close to 2 inches or rain since 8am this morning. Temp is 35 so there has been some ice and snow mixed in as well. Ugly ugly weather. At this point it needs to get cold and freeze up, that's the only way a guy will be able to walk off the pavement without waders on at this point.

We had probably 1-1/2" of rain yesterday according to the local weather. But was sunny today and winds swung around to SW. Probably got to 60F.
Move'n on.
