    1) I don't recall a wager, and 2) I didn't make the prediction. :cool::laugh:

    wife and I went for a short hike in the rain this afternoon at San Juan loop trail off Ortega Highway. 1-230 pm. light calm rain during the hike then it really started coming down right as we got back to the car, along with hail, wind and lightning. so far almost 2" from this storm in Laguna.

    Love hiking in the rain! The pooch and I hiked a couple miles in the SBNF behind the cabin. Came across a singletrack and followed it until it ended. The rain turned to slushy snow about an hour ago.

    Cursed rain...

    I didn't think it was going to amount to much today, so I wore my normal work attire - wool slacks, low leather Clark's shoes, Nordstrom dress shirt, Jerry Garcia Christmas tie.

    All ruined as I had to wade through shin-deep water and get blasted by the deluge for hours. Stupid me had his boots in the car last week, but not today. :bang:

    Well at least I did bring a semi-waterproof, hooded lightweight jacket to keep the drizzle at bay. :confused:

    Did @Mikie make it home with today’s crappy weather & snow? I don’t miss fighting the weather & roadblocks to get to & from work from the northern province. 25 years of commuting off that mountain and only missed work once. Now I get miffed cause it’s chilly and my bike might get dirty.

    Of course I'm not really cursing it - but so far we have been fortunate with light soaking rains. Today's drenching probably did some serious damage around the southland. I haven't checked the news yet, but if it came down in the burn areas like it did where I was, I imagine the impact was severe.

    Snow. Pray for snow. Much better at re-stocking our water reserves. :thumbsup: A foot or so fell at Mt. High. Thankfully, it was not rain. :)

    PS - if you have off tomorrow and like snow sports, Mt. High should be pretty good for early December. Probably better than any day last season.

    I know silly, I’m just messing with you:p
    I do like snow, mostly running and mtn biking in it :inlove: haven’t skied in years. But I can’t do anything anyways until the blasted knee is ready.
    We’ll hope for some good snowpack this season..that would be the awesome!
    Stay dry out there Mr!:):ninja::laugh:

    That was spectacular. Didn't look like much at first, then at about 1:15 - wow! Watch out for the guard rail and all the debris behind it. :eek:
