It has been and "interesting week" weather-wise in the Bay Area. First - the smaller version of the Tsunmai - then a week of rain, rain and more rain! Yesterday's storm was intense.... there even was a tornado watch in San Mateo, (This is as rare as an earthquake in Iowa!) No tornado arrived - but - there was a water spout at Ocean Beach which was captured on film! Looking out to the GG Bridge from my office on the 43rd floor, the rain was bouncing off the windows and glacier-like sides of the building like little pellets of ice. It was quite beautiful. Last night - the storm raged on - with thunder and lightning (as rare as an earthquake in London)...but, in between thunder claps, I was able to see the moon peering out between the black clouds.... GORGEOUS! Tonight, I will miss the closest full moon in 19 years as we are expecting (wait for it)..... - another HUGE STORM....60 mph gusts..... so, for those of you who have clear skies tonight - look up and enjoy the splendour for me!
