I love the rain!!! Unfortunately, I don't like the people who think they can drive in the rain like they drive when it's dry.... there have already been a bunch of accidents and I was almost in 2 this morning alone.

I swear, I'm not trying to slow traffic down by leaving a few car lengths between myself and the person in front of me, why the honking and flipping off???

People drive like idiots even when the conditions are dangerous. That's why I decided to stay home today.

Although, interestingly, the first rain gage to tip 0.01" overnight was in fact in SD county. But then, it stopped.

It's nice and we need it, but I am glad I get to telecommute.

very impressive rain totals from this storm so far with a few records broken. Can't believe how much rain came out of an October storm, very unusual. Hopefully it stays wet and we get above normal rainfall for the season.

"Rainfall totals, fed by the remnants of a Japanese typhoon, were impressive. The 2.43 inches that San Francisco received by 4 p.m. obliterated the previous mark for any day in October - 2.29 inches, set in 1969. It's also more than 10 percent of what the city normally receives during an entire year.

The high-water mark by late afternoon was set in Ben Lomond in the Santa Cruz Mountains, which had received 9.14 inches. Elsewhere, 5.63 inches had fallen in San Rafael, 3.14 in Concord, 3.79 at the Oakland Museum and 2.04 in San Jose.

I hope some of that rain makes it down this way to SoCal, we really need it.

My yard loves this weather. So do I--it's sort of a cozy, all-cuddled-in feeling indoors with the rain tap-tap-tapping outside.

And we're conserving on water by not having our sprinklers on this week. Yay!

Jet stream will slide a bit to the north for a few days, enough time to dry out a bit.

Computer models for early next week are conflicted about whether to build in a late fall type progressive ridge or bring in another Gulf of Alaska system.

Where i am ... in the Santa Cruz mountains (but much closer to the coast than B.L.) ... 91/2 inches (in much less than 24hrs).
The rain started to get really, really heavy around 8 am and stayed heavy until late afternoon.
It was intense.
The wind was crazy strong.
We lost power for about 27 hrs.
Glad it's back on.
Now all the insects are swarming and it's very, very wet.
Good storm.
