Well, that's no fun. The beloved blankets of rain, which have mercifully been covering the Bay Area for the last couple of days, will dry up come tonight. "The rain is expected to end by the end of the day, and the region will stay dry for at least the next week," reports SF Appeal.

But, as Appeal goes on to note, "Cloudy skies are expected over the next few days." And this should be good for the first night of Hanukkah starting on Saturday. Challah! Ahem.

The recent storms have brought us fallen trees and flooded streets. We can look forward to more throughout the month of December, presumably .
