Good 44º pouring rain morning.
Yesterday with all the rain we're getting here, it's snowing like mad at higher elevations. Here is our Siskiyou Summit...
We've gotten 1½" from this storm since yesterday. 2½" so far. More coming through the weekend.
Nothing like rain, but the worst part is Dude going out to do his "thing" and coming back in soaking wet! UGH~~~

Let's face it... English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger. Neither is there apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England nor fries in France. Explore paradoxes.... quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
Why doesn't Buick rhyme with quick?
