Nor Cal Tropical storm

Wow, this storm has been well welcomed by me, today it was very nice and balmy 68 with a humidity of around 65%. They were saying we should have gotten rain but I think only cities north of around San Mateo were getting any rain today.

It came from Hawaii, it's the "Pineapple Express." At the top of Mount Tam... (I dont know how to spell it so i'll leave it at that) There were 100 mph winds.

Basically in California the stronger storms coming out of the south are considered Tropical Storms. (even though they are a lot less strong than the ones in Florida for example)


I live on the Peninsula near Redwood City, (which was 71 yesterday, pretty nice)

We've not really gotten the rain they were talking about for the past 2 or 3 days. Sunday was pretty damn rainy, but other than that we got a few drops really early this morning.


Here's some pictures I have from last night and this morning.

^Yes its usually around afternoon and its a sunny 90+ degree day and suddenly you see black clouds coming and loud rumbles of thunder and then its starts pouring and i mean pouring you will get soaked in seconds and then thunder is every few seconds and within a few hours its gone and sunny again. Thats why i like summer the storms

WA state also have fair share of pineapple express storms, too. IT can warm up to upper 50's to low 60's with rain. It's like bringing tropical moisture from Hawaii to WA state.

Lightning is fun to experience when you grow up in a place where it doesnt exist.

It's been raining quite a lot here today too.

There was no lightning here but we got lotsa rain. I like getting the pineapple express in winter. I think the overnight low was only like 8-10C (46-50F) last night, and that's pretty uncommon here in winter.
