I've been living inI've been living in California for almost 20 years (a NH transplant), in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our rainy seasons during that time was pretty consistent. However, just moving up to the Sierra foothills this past summer, we have been bombarded by rain over the past six weeks. The longest duration of the heaviest rain I have ever witnessed in my young 50 years, was about two weeks ago. A fairly dried up pond on our property, filled up to about 10 ft deep within a weekend of this rain. I fully support this pineapple express "business" but now, I would like a big dose of snow, please! Let's bring the temps down a bit Mother Nature!! :-D
