    Giant storm whacks Northern California, Oregon:

    Satellite view of pacific coast storm

    Um . . . I'm not an expert, but that sucker looks, you know, cyclonic. This is the Northern Pacific, in January. WTF?

    Well, as my aunt down in Alameda put it, they need the rain. And Oregon and Washington need snow. But the coasts could probably do without wind-driven cows blowing through the streets.

    Eh. I'm in the Bay Area right now. In New England yesterday's rainstorm would've been considered another day in January- oh, and it would've all turned to ice.

    I enjoyed our brush with real weather, but on the other hand I didn't lose power (sorry, Ariana, that's no fun).

    Looks like we'll have a beautiful day today, though.
