California storm brings heavy
rainfall, flood warnings; strong
winds knock out power

San Francisco — The second in a series of storms slammed Northern California on Friday as heavy rain and strong winds knocked out power, tied up traffic and caused flooding along some stretches. The weather also may be behind the death of a Pacific Gas & Electric worker in West Sacramento who was killed after his truck crashed into a traffic signal pole during the stormy weather. Flights were delayed at San Francisco’s airport, and in the city’s affluent Pacific Heights neighborhood, traffic was blocked for hours after a large tree crashed down, smashing a car and obstructing a busy street.

That´s why we all have generators and extra food, gas, and water here. We just need PG&E to get the power back up. CA gov´t is totally useless, no, they would be a hindrance. This was a rainy but not so windy storm so it was just the early winter trees down and small mudslides. After a few storms it gets to where not much more comes down.

No power outages here! The storm last night was insane though. My room practically flooded out when the wind started blowing the pouring rain in my window. Most of the cats (including half the feral family I take care of) came in and stayed in my room half the night. Of course, the crazy critters were fascinated by the weather and still kept going out to play in the rain too. I think they just wanted to share their wet coats with me! Anyway, we all survived...even the rest of the feral family that stays outside.

Rain is good, although December rain often forebodes a dry January and February here.

We got 2.6" of rain in San Bruno Friday, and the ground can´t absorb it all... it must suck in the counties north of SF where they got triple that. Those rivers won´t be fun this weekend.

We could take all these storms better if we had a couple of days between ´em, not just a few hours.

Here in MarvelousMarin we got about 3", but it is still coming down. I´ve seen more wind and rain than this storm brought. I htink this is 24/7 new hype.

As previously noted, this is first storm of the season, and more will likely come in the next three or four month. The the City of Santa Rosa will flush and the Russian River will be flooding the numerous river communities that keep rebuilding in areas that food every few years. Go ahead a rebuild, but not on our tax money dudes, get your own insurance.

It´s the Pineapple express. I´m sorry for the death of a PG&E worker, but anything else bad that happens in Sacramento is usually higher taxes by crooked Democrat politicians. I think FEMA can skip this one.

9, we lived in Petaluma for years - many of them very very wet and rainy. Every time the Russian River flooded there were news crews showing the sad plight of the ´´river rats´´ - flooding again. AND they would all loudly vow to rebuild in exactly the same place. AND, they would always get some kind of gov´t bailout to do exactly that.

I have a clear memory of random poles on River Road with high water markers on them - almost a point of pride. ´´See what we lived thru - we did it then, we can do it again´´. And again. And again. Now that CA is clean out of money, will Sac be able to fund another bailout? I bet they will...

It must be a river/water obsession. Here in the Cincinnati area, the OH river floods and people also point to the many floods they survived and rebuilt with such pride. I say, get to higher ground but they stay... in the mold and mildew and mess. And, we pay for it.They would never do this if someone did not bail them out, but who knows?

Eight inches of rain and counting. This reminds me of the pineapple express of ´82. It rained for days and finished with very heavy downpours. Mud slid everywhere. "Storm of ´82" is the last famous storm we had here. Look up "Love Creek slide". I don´t see any predictions for a foot of rain to fall in eight hours like it did then but I´m off to get more supplies today anyway.

Yeah, it´s a real mess up here although Bay Area folks seem to be bearing a bigger brunt than we in the foothills. We´re not worried about flooding, but there are real concerns for the valley. The wind last night had our tall oaks and pines nearly bent in half. Fierce!

We´ve lost power only once and for a relatively short period (fingers crossed and knocking on wood). I try to avoid looking outside, such is the mess we´ll have to clean up after it´s over.

Holiday street fairs have been postponed and cancelled all over the place. Hoping to get to an indoor event down the hill. We´ll see.

These are big storms, no doubt about it, but nothing like you east coasters had to endure.

Courage! Forward!!

We got nearly 5 inches here in Lake County. For California that´s quite a bit at once. Nothing like the east coast tho. Wind was crazy night before last, but no trees or big limbs down, just leaves, leaves and more leaves. It´s bringing the lake up, I can see the far side of my dock from the kitchen window now. Yep, 2 generators, extra gas and food...we try to be ready for anything...however, we were not ready for obama to be re-elected...still sick about that. Glad California Ldotters seem fine. We gotta stick together in this doomed state.

Here in Paradise California, up on the ridge near Chico, we´ve had wind, rain, power outages, trees down, and flooding, with total rainfall so far at 4.5 inches of rain and another blast due to hit us tonight and tomorrow morning. Just up the hill at Stirling City they´ve endured 8.4 inches of rain! This is all in just the last 24 hours, and we´ve got about 24-36 hours left to go.We´ll get a day off from the rain on Monday, but more storms are forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday! Truly, this is the Pineapple Express!

This is Northern California so we´re used to a lot of rain. I live north of Sacramento. Only minor flooding. We have a good system of creeks and rivers for drainage so there is nothing like the widespread damage you saw in the NE.

Here in central Mendocino County we got 9 inches in 48 hours. All the seasonal creeks were running wild, and we had gopher hole gysers in the front yard. Its good to live at the top of the watershed! I´ll post a picture of our creek on the Connection.

The wind was howling with occasional gusts that rattled the windows. There was major tree trimming along our power lines this year and so far we´ve not lost our PG&E. Of course, the generator is ready to go, plenty of food, our own well, and extra wood for the stove. Ready for the storm that´s supposed to come in tonight. Although we will be slipping into town this evening for Vigil Mass since it will probably be nasty tomorrow morning. God bless you all.

Kiev, Ukraine -- Both Kiev and Washington say that Russian forces are massing in large numbers near Ukraine´s eastern border -- and that they represent a threat to Ukraine and potentially to other former Soviet states. It´s hard to pin down an exact figure, amid a welter of different views, but the U.S. and Ukraine agree the number of Russian soldiers present is rising fast.

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country.

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin on Friday said Russia´s takeover of Crimea showed off its military prowess, as his defence minister reported that the Russian flag was now flying over all military sites on the Black Sea peninsula. In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War. "The recent events in Crimea were a serious test," Putin was shown on state television as saying in an echoing

Washington - The United States and Europe must stand firm in rejecting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea not just because they challenge the principles a peaceful and prosperous Europe is built on, President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, but also because they thwart "universal values" of freedom and self-determination that stir all humanity. The president’s speech – the format Mr. Obama has favored for delivering big messages in foreign places – came at the end of a day during which the American leader visited for the first time two pillars of trans-Atlantic relations: NATO headquarters and

BRUSSELS — President Obama said Wednesday that Europe and the United States now face “a moment of testing” that challenges their unity and the international order they have worked for generations to build. In a speech Wednesday evening at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in this Belgian capital, Obama suggested that the current standoff with Russia over its incursion into Ukraine is part of a more fundamental struggle between democratic ideals and “an older, more traditional view of power.” He warned against “complacency” in the face of what he called Russia’s violations of international law in taking over Crimea. “If we

WASHINGTON — While President Obama insisted again on Tuesday that the West would not recognize the annexation of Crimea, officials in the United States and Europe have privately concluded that Crimea is lost and that the real challenge is stopping Russia from further destabilizing Ukraine. After meeting with allies in Europe and suspending Russia from the Group of 8, Mr. Obama indicated no plans for additional sanctions unless Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, makes another provocative move. Every reference to further action against Russia during a 40-minute news conference in The Hague came with conditional phrases like “if the situation

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a
