    Wx - Watchout west coast!

    Looks like another engineered storm for the west coast, RAIN RAIN RAIN. Burn areas especially. Heads UP! Snow melt flooding .

    Just guessing here, but I would say an engineered storm is one that freight trains along the jet stream and brings more storms behind it. Sometimes I hope it's the engine because we could use the rain. Other times I'm praying for the caboose.

    Engineered ?.... this is a well known long witnessed weather event for the west coast.

    Pineapple express its been happening before we even lived here .

    Basic study of the geology of the west coast shows it used to be wetter a lot more often.

    It has been lessening for thousands of years.

    Lot's of water and snow forecast along with winter storm warnings. Royal Gorge Ski area listed the yearly snow fall this morning of 236" with more falling, the NFAR went from ~1000 cfs to 15,000 cfs and climbing. Be careful out there this is nothing to mess with!...............63bkpkr

    How the hell can you people live in California? Rain, Snow, Earthquakes... Terrifying.

    Oh, wait...I live in East Central Florida...Hurricanes, Severe Thunderstorms, Fires, Alligators...

    Never mind....
