Storm of the Decade

The hatches have been battened down for what the news is calling the storm of the decade- due to hit the Bay somewhere between 10pm and tomorrow morning (unsurprisingly vague). Some reports are saying 8 inches of rain and winds at 60mph. 
Schools will be closed (and possibly bridges too) tomorrow. 

While what I'm actually anticipating a light sprinkle (I grew up in the Midwest- the weatherman is ALWAYS wrong) I did speak with the trainers just to make sure everything was prepped. Classic worried horsemom! 
I'm actually less concerned about Wilbur in his pasture than I am about Ellie hurting herself in the stall. 

Cheers to some much needed rain and our Northern Cali horses weathering the storm safely!
Yes- Brook is busy clipping her dog!

All tucked away!
