OK, could somebody please turn down the volume on this rain? In the past 10 days, we've put about 2 dozen little plants in the ground - my order from Annie's came Friday. I'll bet you I'm going to see all of them flattened tomorrow from the heavy downpours today. First time all winter I had to turn up the volume on the TV just to hear it over the drops hitting the skylight - it sounded like hail! I know we need it, but not all at once!

Some of the plants have already been attacked by caterpillars - fuzzy black ones with a reddish stripe.

Well, get ready, 'cause we got more on the way. I see that they're calling for the 'possiblility' of snow at sea level in the Bay Area...bundle up, guys! Jer was out cutting more firewood today...lol...I'd been hoarding my last cartful, now I'll have a fire tonight.

Oh...yuck! Now I'm hearing there's a possibility of snow around HERE this weekend. Guess I'll be pulling out the row covers after all. This happened about 20 some years ago on the front property.

They said by Friday we may even have snow at sea level, that's cold! Last time that happened here was 1978.

We moved to CA from WI in Jan 1961. I believe is was Jan of 1962, in Sunnyvale, when we had snow on a SUnday morning, waking up our parents with excitement. Daddy was less than enthused, moaning "NO! that is why we LEFT WI"! But, he went out and taught the neighborhood kids how to fight dirty in the snow. It was gone by afternoon.
