Weather News

"Rain, rain go away; come again another day".

Sometime this morning between 2:30 am and 4:30 am, the rain started again. The wind was blowing pretty hard too. The back porch light was on all night. It has a sensor on it and comes on when something crosses its path. The wind probably was the cause of it being on all night.

We have metal awnings over our bedroom windows. They rattled all night and kept waking me up.

About 2:30 or so this afternoon, the rain stopped and the sun came out. I needed to go to the grocery store so I changed out of my sweats and took off to the store. By the time I headed home, the clouds were back. It hasn't started raining again, however I'm sure it will before too long. The storm coming in tomorrow is suppose to be the worse one. It is pretty windy and cold!! The clouds towards the mountains are very black so no doubt it is snowing up there.

At least we are not dealing with the issues that Southern California is experiencing. Some flooding, mud slides in areas where they had fires last year and I read that there was a tornado warning for parts of Los Angeles and Orange County.

The paper this morning said sections of North Highlands, and other parts of the area lost power yesterday. We haven't lost power, not even lights flickering. Very interesting!!

Well, I'm off to see about dinner. I've got a couple of potatoes in the oven baking. I took a steak out for myself. Gerry will probably fix a chicken breast for himself. Last night I fixed a Purity Portuguese sausage for dinner with some rice. I got a couple of them when I went to Oto's last Friday.


  1. Ugh, I can't stand rattling stuff when I'm trying to sleep. Wendell, on the other hand can fall asleep at the drop of a hat.

  2. Hahahaha!! Gerry too! He's snoring the minute his head hits the pillow. The rain has stopped for now, but it is still windy and cold!!
