Waiting for the rain …

11:45 am – the rain has begun. I was at 4.31″ for October before it began. So far, it is gentle.

10:00 am – While waiting, here are a couple eye-openers for us. I get to watch peacefully from my perch, but hopefully, those of you in the threatened areas have all completed your sandbagging and any other last minute preps. Also hoping that this storm is milder than predicted… Keep us posted about conditions where you are in the comments below.

  1. Nothing up here thus far. Radar looks as if this band is headed further south.?


  2. It’s just about noon. I live in Princes Camp below the Los Padres dam in Cachagua. It’s cloudy, warm @74, and no rain, yet.


  3. Kate,

    ..All sleepy here in CVV, one impulse sprinkle < 2 mins long- waiting to be disappointed again from these joker skies.


  4. Well, it wasn’t really predicted to start until 3 or later, so maybe this is just a preview. LOL



  5. Lightest fine sprinkle, sun in and out, spectacular skies! not much rain.
    Cat’s asleep in the corner. I’m loaded up with groceries, firewood, great books, some good movies, and a jar of butcher block sealer to apply, in for the duration. The radio’s reporting flash flood warnings for Big Sur since yesterday. We shall see what we shall see. I hope I haven’t over-excited my garden with passing along the predicted forecasts, it’s not nice to tease.


  6. Lovely sounding … comfort.



  7. OT- Kate/All

    On a side note, good to read that Conde Nast Traveler mag subscribers/members voted Carmel Valley Ranch as Best Resort in NCal.


    “Zombies and Foie Gras: Carmel Valley Ranch pulls in big award via Condé Nast.”



  8. Finally, the rain has started, Hallelujah.


  9. Finally, at 6:20 PM, rain in beautiful downtown Princes Camp, Cachagua!!!!


  10. Glad to hear it. So far, only about 1/10″ down here, despite what the radar showed!~!



  11. Glad to hear it. May the rains treat you gently.
