The above is the view from my front den window at publication time.
The precipitation we had yesterday began as wet snow but quickly changed to rain here on the coast.The rainfall was quite heavy by times and the wind was quite strong as well.It was,as some of the older folks like to refer to such events,somewhat of a tempest.Thankfully,I was 'chained ' to my work bench for the day and did not have to venture out in it.
