Very nice shot, Marc!
Wishing you and your family a very happy New Year and sending you many greetings,
Thank you very much Eric.
May your new year be filled with good health, happiness and many mountain adventures.
Cheers from the rainy California,
It's finally RAINING in California??? Good news - because I heard about all of the severe problems the Californians were having with the water supplies and all of that, not to mention forest fires...
All the best to you,
Well, this is an El Nino year. A shift in the jet stream bringing with it warm tropical waters north to California and beyond is called El Nino. During the winter months warm ocean waters/air and cold polar air collide over the west coast generating a great deal of rainfall. I think this is an over simplified explanation for the phenomenon, but I don't want to start a big discussion here either.
Thank you Eric, and all the best to you as well.
