Get out your brellies, Wellies, and slickers - the rain is on its way. Meteorologists are expecting the rain to start falling this afternoon. Expect high winds and heavy rain. Flooding is a possibility and of course, everybody's favorite - power outages! Be safe on the roads (especially in the right lane on 280 South between Cesar Chavez and Alemany, where a gigantic puddle always seems to surprise drivers) and please be courteous to other drivers, bikers, and pedestrians.

Up to ten feet of snow (Holy Toledo!) is expected to fall in Lake Tahoe this weekend. If you're already there, happy skiing. If not, don't count on the roads being open.
