Very nice! Love those mountains in the distance. And 68F. Sweet. Don't miss the midwest at all. You might avoid the Sacramento River these days, what a mess and it's not over yet. Our cabin near Chester is a few tributaries ahead of the Feather River.

Yes, my sister's inlaws had to evacuate their home in the Sacramento area due to the Oroville Dam crisis. She lives in the foothills near Auburn, CA so she and her husband are not in danger.

We're hoping the Arizona version of Leukemia Cup sailing regatta scheduled for next weekend on Lake doesn't get rained and/or winded out, as another storm front is expected to blow in starting Friday night & on through Sunday, possilby 1/2 inch of rain & 40 MPH gusts on Saturday. We've been helping raise money for one of the events associated with it, so we're keeping fingers crossed that the situation improves and the system either arrives early and clears for the weekend, or arrives late & doesn't hit until Monday or later. Or fizzles out altogether before it gets here.
