We are in the midst of drought in California and today we had the opposite! What a storm is has been. Yesterday it was calm and mild, today it is wet and wild! The schools in Marin County and SF Bay area are closed! What an unusual experience for us in “Sunny California”! Strong downpours and significant winds, not to mention the flooding. Whew! The worst is over and we only lost power for a couple of hours. The creek behind our house is rushing and much higher than normal! It’s brown, so the hills are moving their way down to the sea as well! I’m not complaining, but happy to be safe and dry inside with the electricity on and able to use the computer!
