Double Rainbow on Saturday

It keeps raining. Not a whole lot of precipitation, here; but it keeps happening; and not a whole lot of sun breaks and horizon clearings in between. But sometimes...

Precipitation, yes, all up and down the west coast, and across the Northwest. Look at all that blue, yeah?

But on the whole, it's too warm for the snowpack to be building. The Olympics and the Sierras are doing ok for snow-pack (after a couple of bad seasons for the Sierras), but the Cascades are looking scary.

Fresh Drought Monitor maps(1)(2) will come out on December 6. So we don't have to look at that bad news right this minute.
