Just stayed indoors all weekend. Got some much needed work done.

There was quite a bit of bad luck concerning some people and landslides, bad news.

I live up in Sacramento and we had some funnel clouds form, even a tornado or two. I myself was not affected, nor was anyone really, but a few shopping centers were damaged. It was great seeing the news and cable warnings go into complete spaz mode over this "storm," at least up here in Nor-Cal. Hope everyone stays ok.

My best wishes to all Cals affected by mother nature.

I haven't been affected personally but it's really a pain in the ass. It's been like this since Thursday. Driving around, I see a lot of the usually dry creeks, ravines, and rivers gushing with water. And I'm still pissed off about that damn thunderclap that woke me up Saturday morning!

I'm only affected in that my dogs are bored and driving me nuts. Driving is kind of soggy these days, too, but it hasn't been that big a deal so far.

I hear part of Glendale has been sliding downhill, though. Yuck.

Oh, and a part of the 101 was completely flooded last night.

My family says they're staying inside as much as possible to ride it out. Im kind of worried about my dad, hes a cop so he has to drive around in all the crap when he works.

Hopefully it'll pass soon.

Oh yeah... that's the sinkhole that ate a roadway worker the night before last.

I heard about the 101 closure but I was able to avoid it. Seems the tunnel under LAX (Sepulveda Bl.) gets shut down pretty regularly when we get massive amounts of rain like this.

Also, we have, apparently, passed up the city of Seattle in total rainfall this season.  Insane

Well, the guy who fell into the sinkhole was killed. I think there's been six deaths so far.

I'd say we're lucky compared to those in the tsunami areas, but I guess that only makes sense if you're not a family member or friend of those six who have been lost.  Sad

I just got back from LAX and WOW, what a scene at 1-2:30pm. Arrivals and Departures to the East, swirling cumulonimbus with winds from 170@40kts - sustained! I was out at Dockweiler Beach deciding who was crazier, the pilots shooting those approaches or the surfers riding the storm induced waves. I couldn't get any pictures, it was raining that hard.
