The last couple days we have awakened in a low cloud. By lunch-time visibility has increased to several miles and in the afternoon and evening the sunsets have brightened the low clouds. But last night the sun set within a slit of high and low clouds, and around 4:30AM the rain was pouring down in earnest. Today has been rainy and misty and drizzly all day and our rain-barrels are full again…Visibility is about a half-mile in one direction and much less in the other. The Sierras are getting snow but only at higher elevations (7,000 feet and up) because it’s a warm storm with Mid-Pacific moisture, not Alaskan.
