Craig Tooley photographed the many waterfalls tumbling over the bluffs at The Sea Ranch.

Here's a close-up of one. Most are seasonal creeks that come to life with the blessed winter rains.

During the last series of storms, many trees came down. Craig photographed one of them.

We had four trees come down on our property, several blocking a hiking trail we use every day. The sounds of chainsaws can be heard during this spate of dry weather, as we clean up from the deluge.

The forecast is sunny through the weekend! The southward Gray Whale migration is in full force right now, so this weekend could be a perfect time to see their spouts, a glimpse of their back followed by a tail. I love seeing them.

Since midnight we have 4.75 inches of rain in our gauge. That's a lotta rain a little more than 12 hours! Creeks and rivers are running fast, dangerous, and muddy. When this storm passes on, the Mendonoma coast will be waiting to fill you with awe at its beauty. Waterfalls will be plentiful. Craig Tooley photographed these two waterfalls after last week's rains.

stengel-beach-waterfall-by-amy-rueggI can only imagine what this looks like today after nearly five inches of rain!

The weekend looks sunny and dry, if cold. Perfect weather for bundling up and exploring all that the Mendonoma coast has to offer!
