We’re burning the furniture and roasting the slower neighbors while we wait for the Red Cross to airdrop emergency supplies.

* a.k.a. “bum cyclone.” Everybody sing! (To the tune of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!” from “Mary Poppins.)

    A lot of wind here, and about 7-11 inches shy of the 8-12 inch prediction.

  2. Steve O Says:

    Biggest impact seemed to have been, at least amongst my age group, weird sinus headaches from the barometric pressure drop. Everyone was complaining about them yesterday. Of course, savvy MDM readers know, that was no weather event. That was obviously an Area 51 experiment gone awry. If I hadn’t hunkered down in my tinfoil-lined bunker, the federales might had ensnared me in their mind control test run.

    Up here they call it, “Windy, with a few flurries”.

    But not to worry, I’m sure it’ll all be melted away in a day or two, and you’ll be gloating about the 55 degree F weather and the latest bike ride. Bastids!

    Steve O, same thing here on the sinuses. Mine were a mess this morning, and I cleared them with a neti pot and shot of Flonase.
    We got the tail end of that system, wind, rain, and snow above 6500 feet, but not enough of any to complain about without Patrick cutting off my comments permanently.

    My carpool partner had a massive sinus headache yesterday. Plus, some of the roads closed and power out. Was quite the blow.

    I have to use the Glomar Response on that Area 51 comment. Sorry.

    Enjoy ‘National Sinus Pain Awareness Month’ up North.

    (Did I mention that we are gently sliding in to a mild & pleasant Autumn down under?)

    This is not the New Zealand that I know & love.

    Greetings from Sacto, CA! So far nice weather here but who cares as I’ll be inside standing on a concrete floor shivering and being dried out for the next 3 days. A long day yesterday with the drive north made longer by a stop to replace blown up tires in Bakersfield and some delays in unloading and setting up.
    But hit the sack by 11 PM (after getting up around 4 AM – but it’s jetlag, so?) and the show doesn’t open until noon today – so we get a respite. Now I gotta find something to deal with the cold I seem to have caught on the way over to the land of the Baconator and Big Gulp, Stay warm!

      Hey, Lorenzo, welcome back. I know you’re gonna be busy, and with a cold, too, but I hope you’ll keep us well supplied with tidbits from NAHBS Sacto.

      Like everyone else I’m burning through Kleenex like Maduro printing bolívars. Phaugh. I’m getting W.C. Fields Nose. Ahhhh, yasssss. … Honk.

        My phone is charged up fully so I can get some pics, though you’ll have plenty soon enough from the usual places on the web. Perhaps I can get a blog post up over the next few days with some stuff perhaps not shown by the big boys?

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        A blog post whenever sounds great. We want the Official Lorenzo Take® on NAHBS, Sacto dining, and Life Its Ownself™.

    I like your new “Revelation.” Sound advice for my beginner hands.
