I was thinking the same thing... I grew up there and all of my family and many friends live in Northern CA. Calling my grandparents when they wake up later to check on them.

Hope there are no major issues!!

Yikes that is more than we normally get in a year. Where is that supposed to happen I only heard an inch or two max? I hope everyone stays safe that is an insane amount of rain.

The weather channel was showing a graphic this morning of areas that could get 13+ inches. I was shocked.

I remember when the HORRIBLE Love Creek mudslides happened (lived in SLV at the time) and I don't think we'd had that much rain in the prior 24 hours. That was truly one of the most amazing acts of nature I have ever seen! Loma Prieta was the next 'big thing' but those mudslides were horrid!

I hope everyone is safe and well...just wet!

Thanks Scoobers! We were supposed to travel to the Bay Area this weekend but cancelled our trip because of the expected storms.

We're in Central Cal and supposed to get nothing but rain here as well through Sunday. It's been raining off and on since Wednesday. I stopped at the beach that morning to drink my coffee and got a great shot of the clouds moving in.



I saw 2 deer on the beach that morning! I've never seen that before.

We're buckled down for the weekend. We may go out to see Lincoln but that's it. I think Northern California is getting the brunt of it Stay safe, NorCal Peas!!!

though we are getting 3-8 inches...but all our rain comes nov-march. right off the ocean..here we go.

I thought sure our power was going to go out last night, but it only flickered. A lot of people nearby lost power, though.

My main worry is a tree falling on our house, but it hasn't. Lots of flooding nearby that won't reach us.

I'm in Chico.

Thanks!

Wednesday's storm was supposed to be the worst of the string, but it turned out to be not so bad. It started raining lightly here yesterday afternoon, but really hit hard around 10:00. Woke me up at 3:00 lashing at the windows. I think it has been raining consistently ever since.

Thankfully, we have nothing planned this weekend so we can hunker down, light the fire, and stay dry.

It hasn't lived up to the hype so far. South SJ got .3 in on Wed and none yesterday and it is raining nicely now since last night. We need it!

But the Santa Cruz mountains will be the 13 in area if anywhere and there are always chances of mudslides up there. It amazes me - those that live up there because there always seems to be slides or fires or something.

We probably won't get much rain in San Diego, if at all. We do have a high surf advisory & strong rip currents as a result of the storm.

Wow, that's a lot of rain! I hope everyone takes precautions and can keep safe.

Here in OK we'd love to have some of that rain, so any of it you don't want, feel free to send some our way! We're in we're pretty dry

Morro Rock--that's what I thought but wasn't sure...

Yep, Morro Bay I love this beach. It's so peaceful and everyone is friendly. Surfers, walkers, dog people.

I got another shot back toward the stacks where there was a hole in the clouds with sunbeams shining through. Between that and the deer, I felt like I was getting a message that morning ...

The ocean is my happy place

It's been pouring here in the Bay Area since last night and hasn't let up once. I even had to prop something up against the front door last night because it felt like it was going to blow open! We do need the rain and sometimes it's nice to feel like we have actual "weather." LOL

Dh wants to cut our Christmas tree down this weekend; I think he might be going alone.

I live up North... Way North and we have had pretty much non stop rain and strong winds the last 4 days or so. There were predictions that we would get 5-10 inches of rain with this 4 day storm. There may be a break in the storm Monday and Tuesday, but another storm is right around the corner.

We're averaging. 1-3 inches a day. Thankfully our rivers are under flood stage, for the time being.

Im in the Bay Area (Orinda) -- raining but not too bad yet. My son has a soccer game in alameda tomorrow and they are not canceling it....kind of annoyed. Another son had games in Manteca, but the city so Manteca cancelled all games thank goodness.

Eta: this morning though my friend had a huge oak fall down, it crushed her deck but thankfully did not touch her new house--

I'm thankful that past leaders in Pleasanton
worked to make sure we have awesome drainage.
You rarely hear of any problems here because
of them

BUT, I wanted DH and DS to get our tree out of
the garage attic this evening and don't want
them to do it when it's wet. Hopefully we'll
have a window tomorrow.

It was pretty intense here in SJ today---and I love it!!! I like right up against the Santa Cruz mountains, so we tend to get a lot more rain at my house than in some parts of the valley. We did have two leaks though, which I did not love.

It stopped raining tween 2-4 and picked up again. When my backyard is a big puddle, then I consider it a big storm. That hasn't happened yet...

I'm new to CA and still don't understand how much rain is a lot or a little. I'm from Maine and it rains or snows forever (or so it seems).

But I had to post because I'm so excited to see the pic from Morro Bay! I live in SLO and always wonder if there are Peas around here!

Several bouts of unbelievable hard rain in Sonoma County over the past couple of days. We are due for one more big storm Saturday night. I keep telling myself that it is winter so I should be prepared, but I never am!

We live in the southern end of SC Mountains. Just checked the rain gauge, 3.75 inches since Wednesday. On Tuesday DH cleaned all the drains, battened the hatches and went into town for groceries in anticipation of these storms. Luckily we live high enough that I don't expect flooding at our house, but our road may flood near a small lake at the bottom of our hill. I'm more worried about trees down and mud slides.

ETA: After posting I thought my post sounded weird after many of you had to deal with hurricane Sandy. I know these storms will be nothing compared to that.

I know Smayer, that's why I hadn't posted about the crazy wind and rain we've gotten. What part of the county do you live in? I'm in Watsonville.

This storm is hectic but nothing compared to what others are still dealing with. All I've had to deal with is trying to fish my neighbor's BBQ out of her pool and a few fallen trees.

Shih Tzu Mommy - I had to send my driver (I dispatch trucks) up Love Creek recently, it still terrifies me. I didn't know people still live up there.
