Rain Already!


Some people experience seasonal depression in the winter, but I do all the things to bring on hygge* instead.

We did not move from the house today; we mostly worked in the office and watched movies.  Mary whipped up some chocolate chip cookies, just what we need!

No more listening/trusting the weather people OR the “newspapers”!

News From Today: LOS ANGELES – A dangerous atmospheric river storm is blasting California with widespread impacts from heavy rains, damaging winds, and potentially life-threatening flash flooding.

Forecasters have highlighted Southern California, including downtown Los Angeles, for a rare “high risk” of flash flooding as the storm has already dumped several inches of rain across the region Sunday with more to come Monday. California Gov. Gavin Newsom even declared a State of Emergency for several counties in Southern California to support storm response and recovery efforts.

The “high risk” is the highest rung on NOAA’s flash flood threat scale and is only issued under the most dire of flooding forecasts. “Life-threatening flash and urban flash flooding possible in the high risk area,” NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center (WPC) said.

We waited all day to see the boats and emergency vehicles go by after the severe flood warnings; we got less than 0.1 inches of rain all day!

We binge-watched “Royal Pain” in the afternoon and then returned to the office at 5:00 pm to continue preparation for the tax man! The office work table is now clear and I can see the top of my desk!

* Hygge = In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Cozying up with a loved one for a movie – that’s hygge, too.

We are watching you!
