We, like many others in our country, have had a great deal of winter weather; rain in the valley, snow in the mountains. Right now the Northern Sierras have 161% accumulation of snow. That is an enormous amount. I am grateful for all the rain (including the serious downpour we had today), yet, I am grateful for the forecast this coming week - sun, clouds with zero rain. We need this break so we don't have flooding, which is the main reason I am grateful. Floods are no fun.
