I watched the forecast a few days ago with great interest. There was a storm brewing that had great potential. Normally we get storms that blow through from west to east. They are over in a few hours. This one looked different. There was a high probability of the low pressure to just sit over the region for days and pump moisture up from the gulfs of Mexico and California. Add to that a cold front pushing in from the north, and it looked like a major precipitation event. WHOOT! It happened!
It started pouring last night. I was having a nice chat with camerapup and carol_kitty when I noticed a bright flash. WTF?!? *BOOM* Yay! Thunder! I continued to chat until there was a *FLASH BOOM!* Eeeep! That was close! I shut down the computer and went outside to watch the storm. Sheets of wonderful rain came pouring down! It looked more like a July monsoon than a March rainstorm. I prayed that it was snowing like hell up in the mountains. A quick check of the snow stations this afternoon showed a few more inches had fallen. It looks like we'll be able to make it through this year with little difficulty. The storm should continue for at least another 48 hours. I was just out walking Anubis and got hailed on. I don't mind one bit!
In other news....ATTENTION ALL AC GOERS...(especially Quentin) THE MEAD HAS BEEN BOTTLED!! "Forty-acre Woods Mead" will soon be ready to drink. I had a glass this morning while bottling and it is some good stuff! One glass gave me quite the buzz. Now all I have to do is find a picture of Pooh with his head in the honey jar and I will have labels!
