Wild West Weather

Posted By Janice Dean On November 29, 2012 @ 6:55 am In Weather | Comments Disabled

Good morning everyone! 

Happy Friday Eve!   The weekend is almost here, and so is the month of December.  We’ll be putting up our Christmas tree this weekend which I’m very excited about.   This is my favorite holiday of the year.   Our kids posed with Santa for the first time last weekend.  I wasn’t entirely on board with the Santa picture since I remember not having the most pleasant experiences with “Mall Santas” in my childhood, but the Santa that came to our little family resort over the Thanksgiving Holiday was very nice, so we took our chances.  Turns out the boys didn’t cry at all – in fact, Theodore, our youngest seemed to enjoy the whole experience.  I’ll post the pics tomorrow.

In weather news, the West coast continues to get slammed by storms with more heavy rain, strong winds and a foot or more of snow.  The worst of the weather will be across Western  Washington, Oregon and Northern California:


Over a foot of rain could fall over the next few days with wind gusts over 70 mph across the mountains. 



Flooding and mudslides are likely due to the heavy rainfall.   Meanwhile, the rest of the country will be relatively quiet, with a nice warm up is in store across the central plains .

Have a great day, everyone!
