California Weather Gone Bad or This Is Just CRAZY!









This is how it looked about a week ago and then we got this




And after the hail we got rain and more rain and wind and mud. Did I mention rain?



And then we got this for a daytime high.
 

Followed by












And also this
 
So we come friends to yesterday and look what do we have here?

And now what do I see?  
With a forecast of rain showers tonight snow mixed with rain showers after 4 AM and before 10 AM tomorrow. Accompanied by our recent morning temps in the 28 - 31 degree range. I am not putting up the citrus trees dresses any time soon.  I must say I am not holding my breath on that one!


I will close this post with a photo from a friend of mine Facebook page. She is up the hill about 2000 ft. These are her solar panels the other day wondering why the batteries aren't charging?

  1. I love this post! I'm a huge weather buff and it always amazes me to see how different things can be from one moment to the next! Great pictures and great story! I'm in line for something similar in the next few days...it's like spring but the temps are supposed to plummet tomorrow eek.

    1. Me too Rain. Weather person that is. So much that one year for my birthday husband gave me a weather radio. A small one more like the old transistor radios we used to have as teenagers. Thanks for your kind words.

  2. I always have to laugh when the weather guys say folks call them up and chew them out for making a wrong call on the weather. It's so unpredictable! No wonder some folks would like to try and control it. But what fun would that be? What would there be in life to keep us guessing?

    1. The way it has been of late guessing may be the most accurate method of them all. I often giggle at the stories such as you shared. Why in the name of all logic would one call up the weather person and hold them to task? What would those people have done prior to modern weather keeping. Some times I think things were better when we didn't have so much technology at our finger tips. For the very reason you Leigh stated in your last two sentences? Life is full of chance and I for one think that is a good thing many a time.

  3. And we here in Minnesota think we've had a wonky winter! Yours is worse than ours. Even so, I tell my husband this crazy up and down weather really messes up my body's thermostat. I seem to always be under-dressed when it's really cold and over-dressed when it's unusually warm! As they say, stick around a minute . . . it will change.

    1. Apparently it will get more interesting. Despite doing chores this morning in 26 degree weather by late morning it was 52 sun shinning and I was having a second cuppa on the deck enjoying the warmth. But don't let that fool you as this Saturday or Friday depending on which source one subscribes to it is gonna rain. Again. Snow is on the ticket also. Let us see what happens. Mama Pea how is your poker face?
