Friday cat blogging: bring on the rain!

Morty contemplated an unfamiliar sight last week. He seemed surprised; do cats remember phenomena they haven't seen for years? Who knows.

All the weather forecasters say El Niño rains are coming this way.

Friends of the Urban Forest offer wisdom we may have forgotten during the drought:

WEED: Weeds will grow with the winter rains. Remove any weeds in your garden and tree basin now so they won’t compete with the plants and trees you want to keep.

The SFPUC emailed to alert citizens to their preparations.

In advance of the rain forecast for this weekend, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) crews are planning to drop off pallets of sandbags nearby the intersection of 17/Folsom early afternoon today (Thu, 12/17). Sandbags are also available for free at the SF Public Works yard, 2323 Cesar Chavez (at Kansas/Marin St.), Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We also wanted to let you know that all of the area catch basins have been cleaned and inspected since early November of this year, and are being monitored on a regular basis.

Let's hope the rains really do come to California. So far we've had one moderate storm.

Here's a clear explanation of what an El Niño means around the world.
