dodging another weather bullet...maybe
For those who wish to keep posted about the weather 6000 miles away: California is getting hosed. The tallest dam in the USA (Oroville) is holding, so far, tho last week 180,000 people were temporarily evacuated when it looked like it might burst. Living downstream from it (far from our place here) sounds really scary. Our main access road is down to one shaky lane, and may not make it thru the current fierce storm. We had thunder and lightning last night, very rare for this region, and many have lost their electricity. I've checked out my generator, and we're buckled down. The volunteer fire dept is out clearing down lines and trees.
