Our poor eagle - covered in yesterday's snow.
Today is looking brighter -
The atmospheric river we were supposed to get, either went south of us,
is stalled or petered out.
As I was driving into town, the snow on the mountains that surround us, are breathtaking. Today is a nice sunny day - in the 50s and warm when you sit in the sun. I sat out on the patio earlier - it felt nice to take in all that natural vitamin D.
While I enjoyed it - I am looking forward to warmer weather. We're just not accustomed to this kind of weather - I don't have real "winter" clothes. I usually wear just a sweater when I go out - I've never liked wearing a big bulky coat. I only have the one big wool coat that I have been using this winter. It had saved my cold behind, a few times this season.
However, there is more rain in the forecast.
I remember years like this - where we come out of a drought, with record rainfall - then it goes back to normal for a few years. We needed it - and Shasta Dam is nearing the top-off level but they are saying it will be May before it is full. The Oroville Dam might be letting some water out today - to keep the valley from flooding.
We have dry summers - and that is normal for us. We don't get those summer rains, like the rest of the country. It's just been years since we've had a rainy season like this.
Be careful what you pray for - you just might get it.
Have a nice weekend - any plans?
Take Care -
