Oh Nooo, the RAIIINNNN!

We’ve got our first storm of the season here in the Bay Area, and of course everyone’s driving off the roads (150+ CHP traffic incident hazards during commute hours this morning, for example) because a few inches of rain and some gusty winds are the Bay Area equivalent of a typhoon. As a former Oregonian, I still scoff at them all.

I did, however, forget to clean my gutters. So I popped out the ladder and did so at lunch. My coworkers were astonished when I told them I’d actually gone outside in this weather to do some work without undue incident.

Sigh.  Californians are, sadly, weather wimps.

    No kidding. Driving out to Auburn this morning was no joke.

    Speaking of weather wimps… I’m getting cold!

  2. I always love it when a Californian comes here to Minnesota during the winter. They freak out and are scared to drive if there is a dusting of snow on the road. The result it twice as funny when they hear you drive through a foot of snow in near whiteout conditions as if it’s nothing special.

    Ditto on the coldness. Got down below sixty degrees in the house last night, so we had our first fireplace fire of the season. Toasty warm!

    Yes-but, why on earth would a Californian ever go to Minnesota in the Winter, when Hawaii is only a five hour flight away? That has to be a fictional person – I mean especially when a Californian wouldn’t even normally go to Minnesota in the Summer? And I’ve been to Minnesota in the summer, that is Duluth and Chanhassen. 🙂
    There really are three Californias, the Coast, the Valley, and the Sierras – which gets record amounts of snow.

    Aargh. Phil’s down for the count and I ain’t learned how to fix that yet….
