It's Raining Cats and Dogs in California!

What a difference six months makes!
Above is the view from our Wine Country home on Monday morning. It rained so hard, the Russian River overflowed it's banks. Water was blowing in under the doors and the wind was incredible! We haven't seen a storm like this in California for two years.

The same view six months ago. Please, hurry up Spring!

I braved the weather to take a few pictures of the neighboring vineyard.

And saw that the wild turkeys are back!

Back in the house to dry off, warm up by the fire and sip more morning coffee.

We left around two for the two hour drive back home. It was very scary. We actually thought we were hit by lightening! But it was just static on the radio when the sky lit up. There were 65 mph winds on the Golden Gate Bridge. Apparently, the worst storm will hit tomorrow.
California is in for a very wet and stormy week!

I'm joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. Please visit her for more outdoor photography.
