Good rainy March the first,

As advertised yesterday, light rain and drizzle has arrived. We have only seen light rain and drizzle totals of 3/100 to 10/100 of an inch as of 5:30 am.

Pearl went out this morning to do her duties and came back telling me it was raining, and please dry me off. 😊

The low-pressure system is still well to the north and will not really start affecting us until later this afternoon.

What you are seeing now is really a heavy marine layer with light rain and drizzle.  https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/conus_band.php?sat=G17&band=09&length=12

The low-pressure system to the north is going to be a big snow maker in the mountains of Nor-Cal. They are expecting many feet of snow in the mountains.

Mammoth is looking at 4 to 5 FEET of snow . Just look at the size of this cold system well to the north https://zoom.earth/maps/satellite/

This is a very cold system which will bring us temps well below normal all weekend long. Temps 8 to 10 degrees below normal today and 10 to 15 degrees below normal Saturday. As far as wind goes, it will get quite windy this afternoon with mountain winds 35 to 45miles an hour, here in town 20 miles an hour.

Rain will really arrive later in the afternoon and fall light to moderate tonight and Saturday, ending Saturday night. How much?  ½ to 1 inch in SB.

1 to 2 ½ in the mountains. The most in SLO and Northern SB county. Snow levels 5000 feet tonight then lowering to 4000 feet Saturday. No real local snow and the Grapevine should remain without snow. Resorts are going to be windy with heavy accumulations of snow.

Sunday through Tuesday should be dry, but quite windy Sunday, and very chilly. Next week will start to dry off, but it looks like more rain Wednesday. This looks to be a weaker system with only light rain. We will not focus on this one until next week. In the meantime the weekend will be chilly, rainy, and windy. Not a good weekend for outdoor activities. It will be a good indoor weekend. Watch a movie or get caught up on paperwork with me ☹.

Welcome to March, let’s hope winter rains will be almost over. I am tired of the rains.  

Stay dry.

Okay techno-jack!! I will love to give y’alls a double thumbs up, or at least 10 gold stars. I was way impressed with Tony and his young sidekick. Maybe Thomas? They just changed the whole complexion of what we’re going to do. Making it work too! I’ve decided that the key to your enormous business success is your skill in hiring and picking business partners. In my experience, I can think of Sharon, Jeannie, Ricky, Doug, Kirk, Tony, Jorge, Octavio. And I haven’t even seen Beatriz or Ana yet. You continue to hit those line drives, even if your run to 1st base has slowed a bit. So fun for me to see!!
