Storms Headed Our Way, Five Days Of Rain in the Forecast

Get out your umbrella as a series of storms is expected to hit the Bay Area

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.

A series of storms is expected to hit the Bay Area this week.

Rain is forecasted to start early Wednesday with at least showers every day through Sunday.

Breezy conditions are also expected on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night.

High temperatures are expected to reach only the high 50s.

If flooding occurs, residents can retrieve empty sand bags at two locations. One is in front of City Hall. The other is at the public works corporation yard at 300 Alhambra Avenue.

There are five locations where Martinez residents can pick up sand. They are Nancy Boyd Park, F Street off Alhambra Avenue, Ferry and Allen streets, Rankin Park and Highland Avenue Park.

The storms might also dampen some of the holiday activities planned around Martinez.

Among them is the Children's Light Parade, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday on Main Street.

The storms might also make holiday shopping a little more challenging.

Good! Maybe my doors will start opening normally again instead of sticking. Darn adobe soil.

Have you tried running a bar of soap around he door that sticks Captain? But to the rain, I was just lookign at the pacific satilite. There is a great web site with all kinds of up to the minute weather info, much more than other weather sites I have found. Anyway, there is a huge low pressure spinning off the coast heading directly at us that could pull in moisture fro the south and north, converging right into the bay area. This has some major potential, or could not live up to what it coudl be. But be prepared. Now is the time to prepare, not when the flooding is starting or heavey rain is happening. Have sand bags ready now in case is my advice. Ohhere is the link to the weather page I really like. http://www.intellicast.com/Storm/Hurricane/PacificSatellite.aspx

Thanks, I'll give the soap a try since I haven't heard that one. I shim the doors but sometimes that isn't enough. I know other folks in the area have the same problem but was surprised to find no ads of contractors dealing with it. In fact about the only area I found with such ads was San Antonio where apparently it is a big problem. This sticking tends to go away in winter as the rain makes the ground swell.
