Winter storm season is nearly here

The Pacific Northwest will be starting it's winter storm season in the next 24 to 48 hours. Rain will be the norm for many months to come. Personally I love the rain - it keeps everything green here. It will soon be snow season at my house. Last year we had snow for several weeks before Christmas which is unusual. The normal snow season is from January to March.

The Grey Whales along the coast will be soon starting their migration south to Mexico. I might just bundle up in my warm winter jacket and go watch, no need to worry about being just a tad overweight, who needs a new weight loss pill when my jacket can cover it all? Ha, winter and another life cycle begins.

Way cool.
I'm originally from San Diego, so I can't say I'm fond of rain, but we got to see those grey whales go down the coast too. I hope your school is still going well. What are you studying? I'm in Marine Biology.

I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. Menlo Park and Fremont. Lived in the Central Valley too where I got heat stroke too many times to remember - I hate the heat now. Moved to the Pacific Northwest about 5 years ago.

School is OK. I was never fond of it. Too many prerequisite courses for my tastes. Math classes I can understand taking, but human health for a non-medical degree? My studies are intermixed with field work so only 3 classes a week right now. Marine Biology is a wonderful aim but financially my aim is side tracked for now. A working student, isn't it fun!
