Storm Tracker Forecast: Rain & snow showers persist Wednesday
Keep your umbrella handy, throw on your jacket, and plan on giving yourself a little extra time to get where you need to go before you head out the door Wednesday. The area of low pressure that was centered off the coast of northern California on Tuesday is now centered along the coast in the Bay Area to start your Wednesday. That trough is pushing moisture north into our region, and that will drive the potential for more scattered rain and snow showers across our region through your Wednesday. Snow levels are hovering between 3500' to 4500' and some mountain travel impacts will be possible today and Thursday due to the light to moderate snowfall making our mountain roads slick. Rain totals will more than likely end up at around or under a quarter inch in the valley Wednesday. Cloudy skies and scattered showers have persisted overnight following the heavier rain and thunderstorms from Tuesday afternoon and evening. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's in the valley, 30's to 40's in the foothills, and 20's to 30's in our mountain zones early Wednesday. We'll have cloudy skies and scattered light to moderate showers today. Winds will be out of the southeast in the 10 to 15mph range, and we'll have the potential for gusts in the 20 to 25mph range. High temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to upper 50's in the valley, 40's to low 50's in the foothills, and 30's to upper 40's in our mountain zones Wednesday afternoon.

Guitarist and band toss music lovers a blues fireball
SUTTER CREEK — Rising guitar and lap steel player Selwyn Birchwood calls his original music “electric swamp funkin’ blues,” defined by raw and soulful musicianship played with fire-and-brimstone fervor.

The group is rounded out by bass, drums and, for the first time, keyboards.
Message from the Editor
While I didn’t get the chance to fully take in Murphys Irish Day on Saturday, I did briefly join the crowd for the annual celebration. To make a long story short, a woman and her six friends from Pleasanton — all of whom I had never met — needed a designated driver to give them a ride from their cabin in Arnold to Murphys. I made the decision a while ago to earn a little extra cash, and may have had a drink or two myself before I made the decision.
