I love the pineapple express!I love the pineapple express! Last week we had a lot of rain in quite a short amount of time, and then a few nights ago (12/1?), the weather was again wild here in northern California. We had what must have been 50-70 mph winds, with absolutely lashing rain. It made me realize I couldn't even imagine what a hurricane would feel like! However, we are always worried about drought here (and the resulting fires, which can be terrifying), so even with the damaging effects of these storms, I am glad for the rain. Today (12/5) the rain is gentle and misty, so far. I feel such empathy for those in the midwest and mid-Atlantic, missing their winters. Let's hope the high pressure situation over those areas changes such that those people can get some moisture, too.
