  • Cal-Nevada Weather - wow!

    So how's everybody doing in our part of the country? We got 1" of rain in 20 min. and 3" in the last 12 hours. Not something we (or our soils) are used to dealing with .

    What's that Steely Dan song that talks about California tumbling into the sea? Good luck to everyone on the West Coast!

      One of my units over here is from Redding. Maybe I should check how their families are doing.

        I just came back from a walk Gortex Baby!!!!!!!!!! the Susan River is getting real close to flooding a few of the streets, more water than I've seen in a very long time. Thanks goodness we live on high ground. Andy, how is your place? you live in a fairly flat area-------------water getting close?

          I guess we are doing better than N Cal. I did an outdoor festival yesterday....wet but do-able.

            We are about 4' higher than the surrounding farmland so except for some minor local flooding from runoff we are fine. We received over 3" in 12 hours. Our soils just can't absorb this fast and they were already pretty saturated from the / previous storms. In town they lost some big trees and some power poles.

              There's a pretty scary story about Californian flooding in Scientific American here : http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=megastorms-could-down-massive-portions-of-california
              Let's hope that the next occurrence is a long way off.....

                Not a ton of rain, but it's ~60 here in Chicago, which is unusually warm for early December!

                  Updated, about 1.5" in 30 minutes and over 4" in 12 hours. Some parts of town got as much as 5" in 12 hours. No wonder we had some flooding. There's nowhere for the water to go very quickly. It's pretty flat.

                    We got a break this afternoon that's held up for a few hours now. Some sun poking out, no rain--------for the moment.

                      The times they are a changin'.

                        Damn, Andy, 80 deg here in Tucson, could you send some of this our way, forecast is that the El Nino has broken down and we will have no rain this winter, and the Colorado snow pack that we depend on for CAP water is very deficient as well. My dear friends in Humboldt County CA are deluged, wish I could wave the magic wand and relieve you of your H2O torment. Take care man!

                          Yup, Phoenix-Scottsdale is beautiful too, but always in need of both rain and snowpack. You guys can get some real downpours as well, I have seen flash flooding in Tucson and have heard about it around Phoenix. At least, after a day or so, it all soaks into the sand. We have a lot of clay here, water doesn't soak so fast

                            We had drought here in Central Wisconsin all summer, and the drought continues. VERY mild warm weather for December. It was 44 degrees out today, and we are headed for 55 degrees tomorrow. Last winter was a mild one as well. We can absorb the amounts of rain you have had with no issues. Lots of lakes and rivers, streams, etc. here.
                            I have not had to use my snowblower once this winter.
                            This weather is not the norm.
                            My wife is from Tucson, and has told me about the flooding that comes off the mountain. Mt. Lemon I believe? They have canals where the flood water channels too. They tell the kids DO NOT play in the washes. Homeless people get swept away. The weather has definitely changed since I was a young man.

                              It rained once since I moved here (Tempe AZ), for about thirteen seconds, and within about ten minutes the ground was bone dry again -- not a sign of water anywhere. I've got to be selfish and say I'm enjoying the hell out of 80 degree sunny days every single day, especially while I'm job hunting and otherwise unemployed. I've spent more time in the hot tub this month than the rest of my life combined.

                              Keep the rain for a little while longer.
                              How about a mother****************ing crocodile pit instead of those titty ****************s !
