I spent the last 4 days in LA. Cold and actually some rain, meanwhile it was close to 90 in NJ. Fucking weather is crazy.

We actually got off lucky. Calgary got 30cm of snow while Lethbridge 200 miles south got 90cm. Montana must have gotten blasted too.

Well, I would fuckin' hope so, since it is October. 98 is an all-time record for Baltimore for any October date. By two degrees.

Mercilessly hot in bama the last four weeks. Full on southern US ball swamp August weather into October. Can’t do anything outside for five minutes without sweating completely through your shirt. I know people who are taking four shirts into work each day to swap every couple of hours. Insane for October.

With the humidity, it was 90 degrees here on Tuesday.

It is 48 degrees and there's a freezing wind and cold drizzle today.

Y’all gotta understand too, I work around molten fuckin metal all day. Heat index on a day like today on our production floor is ~120, and we have to wear protective clothes so it’s like wearing a long sleeve wool jacket all day. Fortunately I’m an office bitch, but still spend around 20% of my time on the floor.

I was in Phoenix this week for work. On Thursday it was 95 and sunny, so I decided to check what the weather was like back home ... and it was 100 degrees in Cary! Incredible. Essentially, I went to Phoenix in October to get away from the NC heat.

Weather has been gorgeous here for the past month. But, I meant to note that we had a little 3.5 earthquake on Saturday morning. Knew immediately that it was a quake.

We went camping in Buena Vista CO in May. Spent the day at a hot spring at the base of a big valley. The weather went from pleasant high 60s to shit show in about an hour. It was actually sort of fun watching the storm come down the valley....there were about 15 Ned Stark references overheard.

And, another one. 4.5 quake just north of Oakland last night. I hope we aren't building up to the big one!

So, 30 years ago today we had the 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake, centered near Santa Cruz. 67 deaths, over 3,000 injuries, and in San Francisco alone destroyed or damaged more than 6,000 housing units. Part of the upper Bay Bridge collapsed onto the lower bridge, the Marina district had fires raging, power went out across the Bay Area, including all the streetlights and stoplights. And of course it hit shortly before the scheduled start of game 3 of the World Series game at Candlestick Park between the Giants and Athletics.

As I’ve told you previously, your trusty reporter was among the throngs at Candlestick that evening, swilling beer with friends by the will-call booth. What a night. At first, after the quake ended, people cheered and assumed the game would go on with little interruption. But then you started hearing reports of the carnage, the game was postponed and shit got real.

From where we were parked, the cops said we had to drive north up 3rd street through the projects into San Francisco. Unfortunately we lived south, so we were dismayed at that. With no electricity and with concerns about building safety, lots of people were out on the streets as we inched up 3rd street. In SF, we found that most highway on ramps were closed due to safety concerns. So we drove around The City in the eery dark for quite some time checking out possible options to get on a freeway (what we didn’t know was that Hwy 101 was a parking lot with no movement anyway). Saw some cool things - ordinary folks taking it upon themselves to direct traffic at busy intersections, big parties of people grilling food that might spoil without refrigeration, people suggesting possible routes home... finally we found an open entrance to hwy 280 to take us home (not even knowing we’d have been screwed if it entered to the other highway.) When I finally arrived at my crappy apartment in Redwood City, my neighbors were all on the front lawn eating each others’ food, and they wanted to come in my place with me to review the possible damage. My poor cat was hiding, pictures were askew on the walls, something had fallen off a shelf, and clothes were strewn across the floor. (I had to explain that the clothes mess was not earthquake-related - just bachelor living.)

Pretty wild.

Well, this sucks goats. RIGHT NOW, the wife and I are in southern Oregon preparing to drive home, with this hell directly on our route!

Sonoma County Fire explodes to 10,000 acres. Currently uncontained.

On top of that, we have a planned trip to Sonoma in November with old friends visiting from Colorado.

Supposedly we're getting 6-12 inches over the next 24 hours. Glad I was able to get all of the leaves up before the snow flies.

I raked up 16 bags of leaves and pine needles last Wednesday to beat the first snow of the year (Thursday was pick-up day, somehow they were still in our driveway until this morning). Finished up by the moonlight of 5:30pm, thanks to the end of Daylight Savings Time.

An we're under a winter storm warning until 10am tomorrow. Maybe up to a foot of snow by tomorrow night.

We're supposed to be on the "lighter" side of this winter storm, but still woke up to about a foot of snow and on the edge of a blizzard warning. Supposed to be a lot more up by Boulder, but we could easily see 15-18" by the time it's over today.
