Wow the weather right now is wild. It’s like a central Oregon thunder and lightning storm. Hopefully the rain keeps any fires started by lightning to a minimum.

Plenty of air to ground strikes last night, from what I've heard.

As long as the ground was well wetted before the strike. Just a nice fireworks show.

Nothing big in the forecast wind wise. Are you sure it ain't you?

A rather nice day today. Clean air, bit of sun, not too hot. Got the car and truck washed.

breaking news.... here in Southern Oregon we have gone 100 days, without a drop of rain, but tonight we may get less then 1/10 of a inch

Followed by a week of over 90 degree temps. I fact it may break a 100 degrees, which has never happened in October date back to 1911 when the records started.

1.8” of rain at home in the hills of Cowlitz Co. during this last 2 day event. The creek is running high and muddy. The air is cleaner, the yard is greening up and thankfully, I get a break from watering all the fruit trees we planted last Spring carrying buckets of water via John Deer. Hopefully, some of this precipitation has reached the crispy dry country and reduced the fire danger.

Wind and rain all day here in Salem. First fall storm; wind gusting over 25mph and about a half inch of rain expected. Not a bad storm, but big enough to notice.


EDIT: Just checked the airport record and at 10:00 the wind was 25mph gusting 40mph. Didn't seem that strong but I'm partially protected from the south wind.

Saw some pretty hefty gusts here yesterday.
Not many apples and pears left on our small trees.
We're pretty well protected here also, but the big maple in the neighbors yard has been
flopping pretty good this morning too. Hardly a breeze down here at the bottom of the small hill.
