Our area had a tornado warning yesterday, which is extremely rare. A few hours from here there was really significant damage, and driving home from work yesterday was basically a blackout because of all the rain. I've never seen so many people with their hazard lights on. Today should be more mellow but still wet.

My first Atlantic storm! We lost power for about 24 hours and I bet we will again tonight because the winds are worse than yesterday. I hate to love storms because I understand that damage can be horrendous, but I've quite liked this one. I was "hoping" to work from home today but my laptop was dead the whole day and the internet was down. Oh, darn it!

It has been raining for something like 48 hours straight here. That wouldn't be so surprising - this is Belgium after all - but today it was so cold that I saw people wearing quilted jackets and woolen hats. In July. what the fizzle?

MEGASTORM! Schools everywhere in the bay area have been cancelled, some for the rest of the week. I'm starting to wonder if I'll be able to get to work tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to dangerous conditions that could lead to injury or property damage, but I'm so ready for a good old-fashioned NorCal deluge. Tahoe is going to be getting a full foot of snow lakeside and up to five feet in the peaks, which is supa-awesome, drought-wise!

So much rain, I loves it! I had to take off my shoes, socks, and leggings when I got to the office because I am soaked. Which is a bummer, because I thought I'd weatherized my boots a few weeks ago but clearly I missed a few spots! Good news is my coworker is on vacation and I totally got to steal her mini space heater and put it under my desk to dry my clothes and warm my feet!

I was surprised BART wasn't more forked than it was, although I left just before the commute really hit its stride, at 7:20 am. Montgomery BART was already closed because of power failure, so I had to walk from Embarcadero station instead.

How are all the Bay Area PPKers? Staying warm and dry, I hope, and with no flooding/leaking/power problems!

San Bruno station flooded and there's a system wide delay!

My sweetheart usually commutes from Oakland but was advised to work from home today so I am all "SNOW DAY!" but alas, when my sweetheart works from home it means actually working from home.

Ha! My ex, who lives in my neighborhood, is also able to work from home and did just that. He texted me a picture of the street in front of his (formerly my) house, by 9am it was already so flooded you couldn't see the curb, the water was pretty much level with the undercarriage of the neighbor's sedan.
