    Yesterday, 79

    Today: 47

    We were lucky, we were not in tornados path. Not everyone was lucky, we had a death in MS, half dozen or so medium sized tornados.

    I had a meeting today, drove 2.5 hours, right through where one crossed the highway, trees snapped in half, amazing the damage and I imagine standing there or being in a small home.

    Just awful.

    Can’t imagine knowing potential devastation is on it’s way, yet not knowing if you will be in it’s path.

    I prefer the unknowable timing of an earthquake happening to that.

    Be safe.

    Cold and we had a mid day snow storm. The sun showed up for maybe 2 minutes (which is the only time we've seen it in the last 10 days), so even that much was appreciated.

    46 degrees, partly cloudy, and a 38.3% chance of Zag three pointers dropping through the nets later this evening

    Thx for thinking of us.

    I'll tell you, it is scary.

    It is especially scary at night. You can see the red/purple radar of the storms coming right over you on the TV and net. Then both TV and net go out (bc we're all satellite here), and you're truly left with nothing but radio on loud, hoping the next report isn't one just to the west of you.

    In the daytime, we might be able to see one coming from a mile or so, and maybe it would give us time to get sheltered up (under a bed or something) but at night, the first bit of notice you're going to have is that in the midst of intense lightning and rain, you'll hear a shudder and feel the walls shaking. That's it, that's the warning at night, then maybe your roof blows off.

    If you cannot tell, I am very afraid of tornados.

    I do better anticipating hurricanes.

    Crisp 52 today,

    58 tomorrow,

    then 60s and rain for weekend.

    If I lived there, I'd build a concrete bunker and head there at sunset if there was any danger of a tornado on the way.

    It was sunny and in the mid 50s today! Our elementary schools had a district wide ice skating party, I don't think I've ever been on an outdoor rink on such a nice day.

    Christmas 72

    We are bbq steak and lobster for Christmas.

    I have to live with mid 90s and high humidity all summer (which starts in 6 weeks), so I am going to enjoy the crap out of having a gorgeous Christmas day bbq.

    It is 8:22 p.m. local time, dark for 3 hours, and it is 71 degrees, with spits of rain.

    World is getting hotter.

    Our thoughts should be with Ozzie, who knows what he's up against right now.

    Took a brief detour on my way to the grocery store. Hadn't gotten out and about for a few days. Walked to a spot near my neighborhood



    That prominent terrain feature in the far background is BLM land, the Pah Rah Range



    The smog layer over Reno seen in this snapshot is fairly typical this time of year.
    The twin high rises are the Nugget Hotel Casino, in Sparks. The high rise on the right edge is the Grand Sierra Resort, in Reno, at the junction I-80 / US-395.

    Wind gusts tonight are supposed to hit 34-45mph.

    Thinking of my Spokane peeps tonight as they are getting clobbered by old man winter

    5" so far here north of Spokane, with another 1-3 for tonight, 1 tomorrow and 1-3 Sat night. 1 more inch on Sunday, then it will get cold...below zero overnight.

    Wed it warms slightly, and we get back into the 1-3 or 1" for the next 14+ days and nights.

    The 24th is the first day w/o snow in the forecast, and 14 days out, who really knows.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Beautiful pics.

    Spokane getting clobbered by winter storm.

    Here, I wake up to 73 degrees, but overcast and windy.

    In 2 hours it will get extremely serious. Almost the entire state is taken up with orange and red radar, a red squall line is supposed to hit at about 9:00 a.m. and we'll lose TV, Net, for a few hours, likely, of hard rain and hard wind.

    Tornados broke out bad in Texas, Louisiana last night, and as I have said before, tornados are just random terror. Highly unlikely to impact you, but highly likely to impact someone as the storm goes through. Totally random chance.

    I don't like them. Not used to worrying about them.

    Have a great day, all. I'll be off soon for a while

    From the Reno, NV NWS:

    HIGH WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 PM THIS EVENING TO 10 AM PST TUESDAY...
    * CHANGES...NONE.

    * WHAT...SOUTHWEST WINDS 25 TO 35 MPH WITH GUSTS 50 TO 65 MPH EXPECTED. WIND PRONE AREAS SUCH AS WASHOE VALLEY AND THE WEST SIDE OF CARSON VALLEY COULD SEE GUSTS OVER 70 MPH. MOUNTAIN RIDGES SUCH AS SLIDE MOUNTAIN OVER 100 MPH.

    * WHERE...GREATER RENO-CARSON CITY-MINDEN AREA.

    * WHEN...FROM 10 PM MONDAY TO 10 AM PST TUESDAY.

    * IMPACTS...DAMAGING WINDS COULD BLOW DOWN TREES, FENCES, AND POWER LINES. POWER OUTAGES ARE POSSIBLE. TRAVEL WILL BE DIFFICULT, ESPECIALLY FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES. SEVERE TURBULENCE AND DELAYS FOR AIR TRAVEL.

    * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...A BRIEF PERIOD OF LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS IS POSSIBLE EARLY TUESDAY MORNING WHICH COULD RESULT IN A FEW SLICK SPOTS FOR THE COMMUTE. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... NOW IS THE TIME TO SECURE LOOSE OUTDOOR ITEMS SUCH AS PATIO FURNITURE, HOLIDAY DECORATIONS (IF THOSE ARE REALLY STILL UP), AND TRASH CANS BEFORE WINDS INCREASE WHICH COULD BLOW THESE ITEMS AWAY. THE BEST THING TO DO IS PREPARE AHEAD OF TIME BY MAKING SURE YOU HAVE EXTRA FOOD AND WATER ON HAND, FLASHLIGHTS WITH SPARE BATTERIES AND/OR CANDLES IN THE EVENT OF A POWER OUTAGE.

    I guess they do it in all caps so we can hear them better. . .
