The Good Old Days

March 13, 2009

Snapshot It looks like quite a soaking this weekend along with gusty south wind at times.  In fact I see very few breaks in the rain the next 2 days.  So yes, it'll be a classic Pacific Northwest Rainy Season Weekend won't it?  Keep the fire going and line up the movies an popcorn.  Oh, and I still think I'll try to paint the living room ceiling…how much fun can you have in one weekend?

Actually this post needs to be quite short because as all of you BSG fans know, tonight's episode is the 2nd to last of the season (and series!) and I need to focus my mental energies on that and my job instead of the blog.

The wave on Sunday afternoon should be watched closely.  Right now it doesn't look strong enough for high winds here in the Valley, but once again something to keep an eye on.

More rain all of next week, although more digging well offshore Wednesday through Friday throws up higher heights and warmer temps over the West Coast.  So we'll go from cold rain early in the week to warmer rain later. 

Just for fun, I did some analysis on this blog:

1.  We started this the last day of November, 2005.

2.  We average 2400 hits per day over the last 3 years.

3.  Page hits per year have gone from about 500,000 in 2006 to 1.7 million in 2008.

4.  The all time peak was December 14th, 2008…the day the arctic air arrived here.  58,000 hits in one day!
