Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 249: Bay Area Rain

The rainy weather continued today in NorCal, leading to all sorts of difficulties in San Francisco and other parts of the Bay Area, including this sinkhole at 6th Avenue & Lake Street in San Francisco:

Yikes! That may take some time to repair...

Our weather radio (thanks, Mom!) signaled a flash flood warning around the Sacramento area this evening, and the same message was broadcast by Comcast on ESPN during the Badger basketball game around 7:30pm. Luckily for us, the warning was for El Dorado, Nevada, and Placer Counties, not for Sacramento County, where we live.

Frankly, we need the rain, given that the past three years have been so dry, leading to the current drought conditions. And I certainly enjoyed the amazing and long-lasting rainbow late this afternoon that was visible from my office window and lasted more than one hour!
