Since they hope for snow for Thanksgiving weekend at the snow areas this is a month early, maybe even down to I-5 Grapevine level. Predictions are for up to 10-12" of rain in one week, that's 1/3 of a "normal" years amount in about 5 days. Maybe I will get some rubber boots after all.

In So. Calif., we're going to get 1/3rd year's worth of rain in about 3-4 days. Those folks that live in the areas of the fires a year ago, have better be prepared for possible flooding & mudslides.

No rain shortage here.

I hear ya. I got almost 2 inches of rain in the last 24 hours up here in the mountians half way between Tahoe and Sac. Winds were strong. Forecast is calling for another 2-4 inches over the next 36 hours with high winds, gusts up to 50. Predicting up to 4 feet of snow above 7000 feet, with the snow level down to 5000 (where I am). I wouldn't mind if I could stay home and enjoy it. Glad I checked out the generator last week and laid in some gas for it.

eta: Hwy 50 between me and Tahoe has been closed since wednesday because of the fire. Now, the fires out but it's still closed due to the strong probability of mud slides. I know some people that live further up the road and except for being able to check on their homes saturday afternoon they haven't seen them for 6 days. A CHP officer was almost lost today when he was checking the hwy and a hillside slid and almost pushed his car over the edge.

Pthfndr: Yep, from the 11pm news, there is a cold aired storm front coming down from SF and a warm moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, and when they collide, we're going to get beaucoup amount of water here in So. Calif.

Yeah?? No shit? Who did you think didn't understand that?

Actually I see the snow at about 120' msl but it's 30 to 60 miles away on the mountains.

Where do you live? I grew up in EDH and Cameron Park. Went to HS at Ponderosa. I know that part of CA like the back of my hand.

I live up in Pollock Pines. I work just down the road from Ponderosa HS next to the hwy.

Damn. 2 inches of rain in 12 hours?! Hang tough CA!

Here we got 2 days of 10+ inches of rain per day within about a 2 weeks time span. Not a really big deal. I'd expect it wouldnt be a big deal until it started hitting 24+ inches of rain in a day.
