    I haven't had anything out here. Would love to try the coupe in snow but they spray salt brine on the roads here. It's really nasty for rust.

    Hello,
    You guys in the PNW always get the brunt of just about any winter storm. We are usually at the "comma" end of the storm front. Rain in So Cal is a laugh most of the time, but at least it is over 15 inches for this year. (ave. of about 14 inches) But, our area is still considered a drought area for watering our yard. At least our water bill this year is much less...We haven't watered since late October 2016. In our area, we can only water on Mondays during the winter and if the storms hit within 72 hours before, well, we skip watering. Iit is a good thing we have changed our yard to succulents and low water plants. No more lawn.

    Clear for now, but there are more coming from the West and Northwest. upload_2017-2-9_5-32-38.png
    What hits the West Coast first, hits the Midwest and East about a week later. Depending on how fast the storm crossed the Rockies. Only a few more months until Spring.

    Yeah, Gales Creek is a few miles from here. Dairy Creek runs around our property. We've gotten used to this tuff anytime big rains come. We got the drill down.....stack anything that can get ruined up on the benches. lol

    Where we are it's not too bad humidity wise. Up the top of Queensland it probably is. It is just bloody hot. Can't do anything about it.

    Left Florida and we're back in Kentucky. 20 degrees yesterday morning and high sixties today. They say it should be a record high. Go figure.
