I don’t think I’ve sported a better tan during what has been predicted to be the wettest year in decades. I know I’ve been preaching El Nino Preparedness and catching grief about it. Please El Nino – raise your head and rain upon us… I can look foolish on my own!

The Climate Prediction Center is forecasting storms throughout the week and possibly later this month. We’ll see. But it’s best to take safety precautions because it will be dangerous if we do get rain reminds Fire Chief Sam DiGiovanna.

Roads will be slick, so slow it down. Give drivers distance, and use your headlights in the day. Have your brakes, windshield wipers and tires checked by your mechanic. And put the phone down!

Make sure roof top gutters and lawn drains are cleared from accumulated debris, leaves and needles.


Be aware of down trees and power lines and electrical outages may occur.

Floors in stores and businesses will be slippery – use caution. If you don’t have to go out, stay indoors.
