Storm: January 2010

Two power failures in as many days. The second of two storms rushing in over New Melones Reservoir and two more forecast as coming this way. Radio says this is the most rain in a one week period since 2005.

A ski trip planned for 4 grand-kids canceled due to high winds at Dodge Ridge. Hail so big and intense we thought the metal awnings would be scarred for life. Two cats, who are totally insane whenever it rains, giving us all kinds of grief. A rush of water pouring in over the kitchen window, causing paint to pucker and sag.

But we are nevertheless grateful to get a good deal of water on our parched state and some beautiful photographs on Cindy's camera.
