I just hope the people are wise enough to respect the water.
This looks to dump a lot of water slow moving to boot.
Reminds me of Claudette came ashore and stalled dropping 42 inches on us in 24 hours.

I hope everyone stays safe with minimal damage.

Got a shower today enough to settle the dust.

Even though the eye went right over us, we dodged the bullet on t his on. Had just over 5.5 inches thru the whole ordeal. The weathermen kept trying to make greater news but it just wouldn't cooperate.

Yep...would have been nice to get at least 1 inch of the 20 inches we were predicted to get from it a week ago.

Turning out to be good hay making weather. To bad the equipment isn’t cooperating. Blew a hydraulic line to the steering on the tractor an hour into a 4 hour cut yesterday. Got that fixed and finished the cut. Checked the tightness on a belt I just replaced and it was looser than it should have been. Bearing going out.

We noticed that listing to all the local station. They were really hyping it up ahead of time but it made landfall like an hour or two behind us. They were quickly down grading everything.

Made for really smooth sailing thru LA though... very few people on the road.

Yup our hay guy is getting after it. Hopefully we will get a ts behind this cutting to send us on in to winter.
