A week ago, I had never heard of an atmospheric river. After nearly a week of non-stop rain, I now know the definition of an atmospheric river, "an extended period of strong winds, heavy rain, lower elevation flooding, and epic snow in the Sierras".
While many areas near us are suffering major effects from the atmospheric river, we are very fortunate to just be a little soaked. The little creek behind and below our house has swollen to the size of a fast flowing river. In between rainstorms, Kellisa and I squeezed in a quick hike.
