Rain — Part Infinity

January 6, 2023

Faded sunshine and billowy clouds this Friday mid-morning in California’s Central Valley as we enjoy a respite from the rivers of rain that have plastered us the last few days.
Reportedly, this is just a short stay as more heavy wet shit is due tonight and on into the weekend.

As the bullshit continues in DC over Kevin McCarthy’s trip to no power speakership, we are waiting for the bottom to fall out of the sky:

Via NPR earlier this morning:

California is enduring the effects of an atmospheric river, a meteorological phenomenon where converging air systems funnel wet air into a long, riverine flow that dumps large amounts of rain when it makes landfall.

“Atmospheric rivers can transport volumes of water many times that of the Mississippi River, doing so all in the air above your head,” says Dr. Daniel Swain, a climate scientist with UCLA, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and the Nature Conservancy of California.

And a forecast for my neck of the woods here in the Valley:

We await the storms on both coasts — us out here with actual rain, America with asshole/dipshit Republicans back in DC

Who’ll end this shit?

Umbrella or not this morning, here we are once again…
