looks like the weather station got knocked askew. I will have to get up on the roof and fix that.

Skylight blown out of the roof of the spa gazebo, good thing it stayed in my yard and hung up in the rose bushes.

About 2.5' x 6' pretty good size projectile.

We're at just under 7" for the storm. Grass Valley is flooding like I've never seen before, and I've been here all of my life.

PG&E is my biggest customer, and they've been a bit busy over the past coupla days.

Holy cow, and I was complaining about my Redwood City to Berk commute.

We have a quarter mile dirt road to our house and half of that looked like a creek. We are planning on putting in a pond in our yard and we got a good idea of what that is going to look like.

I seem to recall some of that dirt up by N C is sticky clay when wet.

Took a drive to Edwards and Purden crossings on the Yuba yesterday, lots of stuff on the roads and the Yuba was flowing well.

Oh almost forgot, the wet, mossey rocks by the water are slick

Saw thet the Rite Aid parking lot in G.V. was flooded, bring back Lake Olympia.

Need to get down to Edwards to take a look. I am so close it it, but have never seen it at high flow. The dog will be pissed that she can't go in.

My Dad made the same comment to me last night about Lake Olympia. He used to swim there when he was a kid.

Seeing kayaks in the Rite Aid parking lot was kinda funny.

49 Crossing

When I was in high school in Nevada City the geology teacher took us to the Hwy 49 crossing of the Yuba at full flood, like that. This was the olden days, when that old bridge was active. We parked in the middle, he had us get out in the pouring rain, and said "just listen".

You could feel, and hear, the boulders pounding their way down the river. He said "that's where the sand on our favorite beaches comes from"

I was very impressed.

get out of your car and listen next time you go there at full flood.

Boom! RumbleBOOM!

raining again here in Mendo, I am up over 6" for the whole storm, a week ago tomorrow it started. We are supposed to get another couple inches tonight.

damn glad I don't live in Petrolia!

Mendo
