Stormy In The West

Well it was a great flight across the country today, clear and smooth -- with the exception of a bumpy descent into Baltimore.

I have only seen bits and pieces of the weather headlines from southern California today, but the rain and snow have been amazing in some areas.

Before meeting my co-workers for dinner, I saw headlines on The Weather Channel that included several roads closed and a lot of downed trees and power lines.

There have been several 1-3 inch rainfall reports and in the hills outside Los Angeles there have been reports of 18-30 inches of snow.

The Monday CoCoRaHS maps for the nation showed fairly quiet weather with the exception of California.

There were some huge amounts of rain in the San Francisco Bay area and points south.

That same storm system dropped into southern California and will sweep across the southern part of the nation this week, bringing some rain and snow here in Baltimore by Wednesday.

Here is a little fun fact about me. Everytime I travel somewhere, no matter where, the first thing I do when I enter my hotel room is turn the air condition on high and find The Weather Channel.

I am such a weather geek! I love to see the local forecast for the city I am in.

Well it is nearly midnight so I will close. Sorry this isn't my typical blog but I will try and find some time to research something fun for you to read.


  1. I do the same thing (re: hotel room and wx channel)!!

  2. Me too. Actually, that's the main reason that I look forward to staying in a hotel. We don't have cable, so I will sit and watch TWC until I fall asleep. Glad there are other weather geeks out there!
