They just said on the news...

4-8"in the LA area
8-16" (as high as 20") in foothills and mtns. :eek:
3' snow 4000'+


Next weeks mod: Pontoons for the EX? :dunno:

Crazy! Here's the San Diego county forecast:

"A series of storms will bring periods of locally heavy rain and
strong winds next week with snow at the higher elevations.

This all week long event has the potential to generate rainfall of 5
to 8 inches near the coast... to 20 or more inches on the coastal
mountain slopes. Typically wetter locations on the coastal mountains
slopes could receive 30 or more inches of rainfall. Even the desert
locations are likely to receive between 2 and 4 inches of rain."

30 or more inches!!!
If that falls on the east facing slope of the mountain range, it'll flow towards T-haven. :eek:

Okay, I'm giving everybody until Monday to SIGN UP for the POTLUCK. If nobody else signs up the potluck will be canceled and it will be everyone for his/herself.

Are we camping on the Bluff or in the wash? Hard to say which might be better as far as mud goes since they both have low spots, but from the weather radar I was watching it looks like Truckhaven has and is getting dumped on..

Dave, you live out that way, could you give us a running total on how much rain you've gotten there this week?

Not sure actually, not as much as LA/OC/SD areas though. Seems like our local news talks about the flooding and such in LA/OC.

Had a pretty good deluge yesterday afternoon for a half hour or so but most of the rain has just been a light steady rain. We'll see what tonight brings.
