I'm Dreaming Of A...

...wet Christmas.

Screenshot from the Dark Sky app a while ago:

That streak of orange, pink, and blue is an "atmospheric river", known locally as The Pineapple Express. By noon local, we are likely to have set a new record for one day rain amounts.

Earlier, I tweeted thusly:

Now, flash floods are not often a threat in western Washington (although regular normal floods are all too common) , but the Washington State Emergency Management Department not only "liked" the tweet, but rated it accurate.

So I've got that going for me. Which is nice.
(Edited to add this, which I had forgotten stealing pirating borrowing from... somewhere.)
