After days of anticipation about a huge storm, the rain has come!

At my last job at the Waldorf kindergarten, we had a saying, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear.”  Easy to say when you’re inside all day! I have joined the ranks of those who work outside in the rain.

When I woke up this morning I thought no big deal just a little rain…I’ve gone outside every rainy school day for the past 5 years. Well, let me tell you, working in the rain for 12 hours is far more difficult then going out for an hour of playtime for the children. This was truly a historic storm with over 3 inches of rain in one day and plenty of wind!

The winery supplied some styling rain gear for us. We were all dressed from head to toe in yellow. As I called down to the wheel from the catwalk, I couldn’t be sure  of whom I was talking to. We all looked the same: a bunch of ducks in the rain! I think everyone who works at the winery has thrown fashion out the door for comfort and weather protection.

The storm soaked us with record amounts of rain but it sounds as though California is still going to have drought problems. It makes me thankful that the winery reclaims the production water and recycles it for irrigation. Working in an industry that is so dependent on natural resource makes me think twice about wasting these precious resources.

It’s drying up today and tomorrow it should be a beautiful 70 degrees again! Ah, Northern California weather is never bad for long.
