Dan - remember making the above comment? Well, it looks like we "pulled too hard" and are now getting ready to get hit by the remnants of "Melor" here in the western part of the USA.
Event: Special Weather Statement
...HEAVY RAIN AND POTENTIALLY HIGH WINDS EXPECTED TO ACCOMPANY
SIGNIFICANT STORM TO HIT LATE MONDAY INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY OF NEXT
A POTENT STORM SYSTEM...ESPECIALLY FOR OCTOBER...WILL MOVE
INTO CENTRAL AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA BEGINNING LATE MONDAY AND
CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. THIS WILL BE A VERY DRAMATIC
CHANGE FROM THE TYPICAL LATE SUMMER PATTERN THE AREA HAS BEEN
EXPERIENCING. THE ORIGINS OF THIS STORM ARE FROM A WESTERN PACIFIC
TYPHOON CALLED MELOR THAT HIT JAPAN A FEW DAYS AGO.
We're expecting several feet of snow in the upper elevations of the SIERRA on Tuesday and Wednesday. Of course, we can use all we get...
