The storm coming

I’ve been watching the weather all week in preparation for my first half marathon on Sunday in Oakland. I keep crossing my fingers for sun, if only because the last four of five 10Ks I’ve run have been miserable and rainy.

Last weekend I lost my shoe in a 10K on Mount Diablo. It got stuck in a creek. I contemplated going on without it. Seriously.

So I keep watch of the weather in hopes for a break. Good news, though. It looks like there will be a break in the rain on Sunday. Forecast calls for “partly cloudy” conditions.

Look outside today and you’ll wonder whether it’s lying. Check our weather page at and you’ll wonder even more with flood advisories popping up.

Even better, my husband sent me a photo from his office in Richmond of the marina there.


He said the waves are coming up pretty good, despite the breakers. The wind is terrible there, he said. It’s pretty bad here too.

Wind gusts are expected up to 60 mph.

Add that to the rain that’s coming and it will make for a not-so-pleasant afternoon.
