Bracing for the storm....

Northern California is finally getting rain, lots of rain, much needed rain, welcome rain. Pre storm skies

We're also getting big storm warnings. Yosemite Valley has been closed to all visitors this weekend as the Merced River is expected to flood. Communities in and near San Francisco are distributing sand bags to residents in efforts to keep water out of stores and homes. The pier in Pacifica is closed; coastal bluffs are being watched carefully for signs of collapse.

While intermittent light rain has fallen in San Francisco during the night and morning hours, the wind has now picked up and I can feel the barometic pressure dropping. 

This is the calm before the storm. Stay safe everyone!
