Yesterday I saw something that is notable if for no other reason than it happens so rarely that it's a big deal when it does occur. We've had lots of rain here in the Valley this past week and severe weather over the Sierra. Interstate 80 has been closed or highly limited, with a snowplow convoying cars through. Trucks have been stopped on both sides of the mountains, which means Wal*mart has had difficulty being restocked:
BTW, I'm told that this is what stores in Venezuela look like. And in the old communist countries. All the time, not just for a couple days.
