Tornadoes, Tornadoes, Everywhere - Even in California!

The above radar image shows a tornadic circulation in the storm just South of Chico, California a few moments ago.  Several reports of funnels and brief tornado touchdowns have been received during the past half hour to 45 minutes from this area.  This storm is drifting slowly toward the East.

In other wild California weather news today, moderate to heavy snow is falling a mere 70 or so miles East/Northeast of this area in the Sierra-Nevada range this evening.

Well, there goes me convincing the hubby that we need to live in northern California! LOL

Now, I'll have to convince him to either go to southern CA or, as I'd prefer, Alaska!

*Grins* I've never been partial to thunderstorms (I'm trying REALLY hard to just enjoy the sounds/sights of them!!) and being in a house that was hit in Woodward, IA did NOT help the all!

Glad to see that we're not hearing of **Major** problems at this time...and hoping that everyone alone these paths (California and all others) are safe and sound!
