That's the view out to the backyard--most of the clutter is out of frame and out of focus. This is our first rainy weekend of the autumn and what appears to be the definitive end of the dry season (and fire season, too). Here in the central Bay Area, we've been on the southern edge of a big, wet storm that blew in from the Pacific. Up north, there are some big totals for the last 24 hours--more than 8 inches in locations in the Sacramento, Feather, and American watersheds. Here, the totals have been more modest: an inch or an inch and a half in locations close to the Bay.
