Rain, rain, rain…

Filed under: Personal — paulcook @ 11:58 am

It’s now been raining continuously here for about, oh, a century. Well, at least pretty much since I got back from Germany. Apparently it’s such big news, it even made it into South African newspapers - IOL: World.

According to the article, “The storms have been caused by cold low pressure off Oregon’s coast colliding with a stream of moist air from the southern Pacific”. Altogether, it’s meant tons more water than usual, and mudslides and such have killed six people already.

But what is also interesting me is that the snow packs in the surrounding mountains are apparently now looking excellent — assuming you can get to the slopes. So I’m thinking… skiing, anyone?
