If you get upset because you put even a shred of faith in any forecast longer than 48 hours that's your own fault. Long range forecasts are a bit of a joke, imho.

BA at TWD is great. People just get pissed when the weather doesn't cooperate and the messenger makes a convenient scapegoat.
He's very open about not being a professional weatherman. His blog was a hobby that's grown due to its popularity. Feel free to watch the Reno TV weather man if you prefer.

It's blowing like an MFer here.

Reno

With the potential for localized flooding, starting today, sandbags and sand will be available for the public at three locations: Idlewild Park (located at 1900 Idlewild Drive); First Street at Riverside Drive; and the parking lot of the Governorís Bowl Park (located at the end of Line Drive which is off of East Fourth Street). The sites and materials will be available between 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., including Saturday and Sunday. Residents will need to bring a shovel to fill the sandbags. Should the potential for flooding and the need for sandbags increase, additional sandbag sites will be announced.

56 mph max gust this morning, third straight day with 50+ winds, with 1.37" of rain in Verdi today. 2.42" storm total so far, and still raining at a good clip.. this storm alone is probably going to be a substantial part of the annual precipitation here.

i dont know of a cozier feeling than being in a tent listening to the rain..Its mesmorizing to us kneevaderns...

I prefer a cabin in the woods with a tin roof. I have had too many tents washed out from under me. Or woken up in too many puddles.

Big snowflakes mixing in with heavy rain at lake level.
Good to know it's snowing a bit higher.

Word is that Mt. Rose has had the best skiing this past week or so.

Shasta could get 14-18' (feet!) over the next four days, wow.
