Monster storm headed our way

Not much color here today. We're in the beginning of what threatens to be a "historic" Northwest storm, with massive winds, rain and expected widespread power outages.

I am not prepared. I have no chocolate in the house. I don't want to go out in the driving rain and howling wind to get any. I wonder if I could order some from Amazon and have a drone drop it off in the next few hours?

I do have a flashlight and hand stitching.

Here's what our local weather guru, Cliff Mass, says about the storm in his blog:

"A true monster storm, potentially as strong as the most powerful storm in NW history (the Columbus Day Storm of 1962) will be approaching our area on Saturday. The UW WRF sea level pressure forecast for 5 a.m. Saturday shows the approaching cyclone. The central pressure is an amazing 961 mb, with an unbelievably strong pressure gradient around it."

Have a safe day

Stay safe and dry... the chocolate will be there when you can get to it. I do hope some of that rain hits CA too... they so desperately need it!

Be safe! Hope it's not as bad as predicted.
