We have a special weather warning ⚠. We could receive 1/4” of rain this weekend. Thought some of you might get a kick out of that.

Description
...RAIN...BREEZY WINDS...COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE POSSIBLE FOR THIS WEEKEND... .A vigorous weather system may affect north central Oregon and south central Washington this weekend and bring the seasons first significant rain to portions of the area along with breezy winds. A cool front is expected to move across the area Friday night with developing rain showers along with breezy winds into Saturday. With increasing confidence some locations could receive over a quarter inch of rain especially in the area mountains. Any outdoor festivities should keep aware of the possible changing weather conditions as the weekend nears including any updates to the weather forecast.

I woke up to flash flood warnings for several counties. Getting heavy rain bands right now...

Went back and checked, I got my first rain off Nicholas Monday afternoon. This is day 6 of the rain but I did get some sun for a little while yesterday. Weatherman says its supposed to rain until Tuesday.

I took this screen save a few minutes ago... Hurricane Nicholas came ashore last monday. And on the 6th day... It's still raining. 5 states that I know about are getting soaked today.

Nickolas is like that friend that needs to crash on your couch for a couple days but is still there a month later! :mad:

Won't this thing ever leave?

It has been a cool day. High of 66 degrees. Weather app is saying low of 39!!! That must be the prediction overnight. I did see that there was snow in the Rockies in the last couple days. It is always cooler on the Front Range when there is snow in the mountains.

I wanted to go to the hardware store and get a new cover for my swamp cooler and duct tape for new foil insulation today, but couldn't get it done mid day, and didn't want to deal with traffic later. I've stuffed the cooler with foam that I use every year. I hope I can get to the hardware store tomorrow to get the replacement cover.

I just closed up the two outflow windows that have been open all summer. One has a fan that blows out air all summer, while the cooler brings in air with the turbine fan.
