Hey.. we made the cover of Yahoo! two days in a row!

I've been working mad hours to help keep the power on, but I know my house in Chico was in the dark all yesterday until this morning. How is everyone else holding up? I got off work at 6 this morning and have to go back shortly. :)

It's not bad down here. Actually dry for now.

It rained for about 5 hours, and it wasn't a very heavy rain. It says we're supposed to get more tonight, but down here is no where near as bad as up there.
 






Is it just me that its ironic that Section's power was out :D
 






Does your computer ever break?! :p:
 






the rain sucks over here.... im in the bay area.... san mateo.... and its been raining like crazy and hard winds with thunder and lightning but once its over its time to go muddin'
 












5 hr power outage on Friday.. Work said "go home". No power. :(

Friend up in South Lake Tahoe paniced, and wanted me to come get him and his wife plus kid in the Superduty.. till I told him it wasn't going to be cheap (fuel for superduty - $150 plus).
 






not so bad here like Colin said, it's just water:rolleyes: My dad lost his phone for a day, but that's it. It hasn't crazy enough to break out the Ex for getting around.

It's funny in that video, they said that even the 4wd are getting stuck as they show the stock CR-V.:rolleyes: Moron's learn how to drive. They just have no clue.
 






My step-brother and family live in Tahoe. They talked to my step mother yesterday and are doing ok. Spending a LOT of time outside shoveling and snowblowing trying to keep up with weather...
 






I came home to Chico between shifts. Looks like a tornado hit. I lost a fence and a large branch nearly landed on the roof. A lot of neighborhoods are still without power. PG&E is around the corner right now double-timing it. Jerks. :p:

Not so much here. We only got the very tail end of the storm. 6+ inches in one night though :)

Glad everyone up north is OK :thumbsup:
