Here comes the rain again...

After waking up to some sun this morning, in the break between round two and three in this major winter storm, the wind and the rain came pounding back at lunch time. We just managed to get out and clear the broken tiles, sweep up the scattered things around the back yard, and build an improvised support to the broken back fence, enough so it will make it through round three. We hope.

We seem to be lucky though. At least we didn't get a three through our roof like a lot of people.

And we were lucky not to loose our power, 150 000 customers around our city lost their power yesterday, 25000 still have no power.

Round three should not be as bad as round one and two...

This is our poor palm tree...

Vilket väder! Hoppas ni också klarar er genom 3:e "ronden" helskinnade och att det dröjer lääänge till nästa oväder! :-)

Lullun - ja, nu kan det få blir lite mer vanligt california-väder igen helt klart...

Petter - yes, we really shouldn't complain - the storms lasts for a few days and we know the sun will always come back, and when it comes, it's nice and warm. Today was much better than yesterday...

Oj oj oj vilken storm ni har fått gå igenom. Det måste varit läskigt. Tur att ni verkar ha klarat er relativt bra vad gäller ström och att ni sluppit stora skador på huset. Jag såg bilden du lagt in nedan med trädet som krashat ner på bilen och husen. Shit alltså! Tur att ni slapp sådant.
