think I might gas up everything and pick up that chainsaw I have been procrastinating about.

these could be some wild weeks coming up.

Here is my station in Little River if you want to watch the rain levels. Treefall is what I worry about.

Good luck, sounds like it could get wild up there.

Bad news for the burned areas.

I'd buy that chainsaw :lol3

Nice wx station. Is it feeding weather underground?

Thanks, I am quite a weather nut. Yes indeed, it is feeding wunderground, I am the one nearest the Little River Airport.
the software is from Scotland, Lightsoft Weather Centre, very nice stuff.

going to look at a smaller Husky, I have a Husky 65 I bought in '75, it is getting a bit tired.

I have an inmate riding in tomorrow night from eastern OR, I told him he should beat feet south and get beneath this while he can. Have not heard back. Somehow, riding into a storm like this just doesn't make sense to me.

I have mine hooked up to a HauteWind. I suppose I could download the history at some point if I wanted to.

Mine is KCASANTA142 on Weather Underground.

What is the weather station you have? I have the Davis Instruments Vantage Pro 2.

My station is ICALITTL2 on Wunderground.

We have the official statement from the government

The weather weenies are saying an even worse system setting up for WA/BC by the 8th, part of the same tropical plume.

I have the same station.

Going to be interesting to see what happens. NWS issued a similar alert today. However, the last couple of storms seem to have missed the south or left us with small amounts of rain relative to either the North Bay or Northern CA. Our biggest amounts should come Friday & Saturday (~4 inches). If we get a third of an inch in the next couple of days, it will be a miracle.

Sahweet!

If you see some fool riding around on a KTM wearing a snorkel, it'll be me.

I think I am as ready as can be.

just took the venerable old Husky 65 in for maintenance and picked up a spanking new Husqvarna 445.

There was a series of storms in '98 that dropped three trees across my driveway, it took a whole morning to cut my way to the road, and it is not that far! Power and phone out for ten days that time.

All vehicles are gassed up and I have 15 gallons extra for the saw and generator.

I'll be watching for my KLR rider coming in with that snorkel on...

But did you get some chain oil and pre-mix?

My ex's parents used to live on the coast. Anchor Bay. Anyway, house was far enough from the trees but those Eucalyptus would come crashing down and take f'ing forever to cut down.

good call! already have that stuff...i think. I know I have a gallon of bar oil. I know I have a gallon of premix made up. I THINK i have more two stroke oil.

http://www.weatherwest.com has another update

ian408 11-27-2012 02:43 PM

I don't use my saw much but the hardware store sells pre-mix which is easier that making my own...except when I run out :lol3

Mendodave 11-29-2012 09:54 PM

Check this out
 
ok, getting into it.

one thing is cool, still have power and exede satellite internet, wow.

baro: 29.65 and falling like your mamas titties

Now this gets me worried.

ian408 11-29-2012 10:27 PM

We've had about a 1/4" so far. Winds gusting to 19 and the barometer is at 29.87 and steady for the last few hours.

Going to be interesting to see what's next. Prediction is for about an inch of rain overnight.
