Some rough weather over in California...
Fierce winds toppled trucks on a major Bay Area bridge and knocked out power to more than 100,000 people in Sacramento as wicked winter weather moved into California on Friday.

Forecasters said the Pacific storms could dump more than 10 feet of snow on California mountains by Sunday.
Winds in the mountains could gust to 145 mph, forecasters said, the strength of a Category 4 hurricane. A Category 4 can inflict extreme damage.
Yowza! 10 feet of snow! 145mph! That's a serious storm. Hope you folks make it through OK.
Let me put this into perspective. I was in 100mph winds once in Colorado. There were full trash dumpsters rolling down the street, and I could barely stand up. Walking was a process of planting one foot ahead of you, wait and regain your balance, then plant the other foot. Several folks lost the roof of their house, which just blew right off. And what they're predicting is half again more powerful than that.
