Weather Heads Up

Just a heads up that we are having our own weather event as our tropical weather decided to become "disturbed" right on top of us, not that I can blame it, abused as it it. It's been raining off and on with little sunshine for the past 3 days or so, and it looks like it may hang with us a while longer as it pumps up with local heat and moisture. Folks here have been watching the news from Texas, many have relatives there, so of course we're all a bit wary. Stay safe!

Yepper. We've been fortunate, but parts of the sierra are cut off as landslides and swollen rivers block roads. Animals are all over the highways seeking drier and higher ground so PLEASE try to take care when driving because they just run without looking.

This was our satellite image just a little while ago. Still raining...

Did you ever get that barrier built for the shop's front door?
Or are you still bailing when it gets bad?

We put up some kind of weird barrier that's a mix between what we planned and happenstance. Gotta work with the tools available, including defective brain cells and all. ;-)

Not looking forward to putting anything to the test.
