We had the lightest brush yesterday with a big storm that really belted Northern California and Oregon: just some light showers late in the morning and early in the afternoon. Still, rain in the Bay Area in mid-October, especially after a dry winter last season, is welcome; and the first half of October has been pretty wet, by our standards — we’ve had two and a half or three inches of rain already.
Anyway, the picture: We took the dog out before the sun was down, and the after-storm clouds were dramatic as always: piles of low cumulus or stratocumulus beating to the northeast with a higher level of cirrus drifting south.
Today’s main project: I’m off to Chicago. My dad’s getting out of his rehab hospital after breaking his hip about a month ago, and I’m going to stay with him for a week to see if I can help out. More from there.
