Storm Beasts Bring Sun Storms & Thunder Hail (#727)

They are clawing at my windows and door; pounding on my tin can roof.  The storm beasts have arrived with new tricks this rainy season here on the northern coast of California.

Unrelenting rain for days with major pourage and brilliant sunshine together.  It was not a sun shower, more of a sun storm.

Power was out for 2 days.  I was cooking up my own storm indoors trying to keep food spoilage at bay.  I so appreciate having a propane cook stove in my RV.  But showering is not fun with just a pot of hot water and a scooper.

When PG&E finally removed all the fallen trees from the electric lines, power was restored.  I ran outside, did a quick happy dance and then right back inside.  The rains had started up again.

I remember getting a thrill when I opened my fridge and there was the light.  Hello, light.  I missed you. It is the little things, yes?

Today I just experienced a second thunder hail storm in the last hour.  Temperatures are rapidly falling, but only into the 30s.  Not bad considering what is happening in other parts of the country.

A weather forecaster would be ecstatic reporting this weather; hopping around in front of their green board like they were stepping on tacks.

The ocean looks like a giant kid’s sandbox was emptied into it, wild brown waves lashing more sand and rocks from the shores and cliffs.   Coastal erosion is beyond anything I have ever witnessed since first coming here in 2007.

As I am writing this, the 3rd hail storm has commenced.  Less than pea-sized, it is more an amusement than a hazard.

I leave you with some visuals ~

Happy Ides of February, Y’all ~

    Oh my, I hope your little tin can home didn’t sustain any damage. One hail storm is enough for me. Pretty scary. Would love to see some ocean pictures when you can get out there without getting hailed on or soaked. Safe my special friend. How long does this rainy season last? Hope it is over soon. Love Ya!

    The noise on the roof must’ve been horrendous. Hope you get better weather soon.
