We here in Northern California have been experiencing some pretty severe weather in the last couple weeks, and especially in the last few days. Especially hard hit was the far north bay towns of Guerneville, Napa and Santa Rosa. I live in the East Bay hills and we have done pretty well, although there was a mudslide in Oakland on Skyline at Broadway Terrace. The road there will be closed for a few more days. Sigh. A minor inconvenience compared to what other folks are going through. Governor Schwarzenegger declared 7 of the 9 Bay Area counties disaster areas today. Alameda County, where I live, was spared the roughest of the weather, and the only damage near me was to my lovely back yard umbrella. I don't know, I kinda like it's new look. I don't think I have the heart to throw it away...it's been through too much! LOL. I always loved that quote by Mark Twain about the weather in my neck of the woods,"The coldest winter I ever spent, was a summer I spent in San Francisco." I wonder what he would have thought about an actual winter day here? :)
