The Weather The storm raged fiercely all day yesterday and into the night. Our power went out at home early this morning and returned two hours later. Currently, the wind that has plagued us with such ferocity has abated significantly, and the rain has become light. Forecasts indicate the storm peaked during the night. This is certainly good news, since local steams and creeks overflowed their banks yesterday, and the Sacramento River crested the bridge across it near here. The Woodson Bridge across the Sacramento River—on our route to Chico—was anticipated to reach flood stage today. The River at that location stood at 180 feet last evening. Flood stage is 183 feet. It appears this is no longer a threat. Praise God!

Other areas near here are not so fortunate, and Southern California is suffering greatly from the storms. We pray for their safety.
