Today, in the darkest depths of the Northern Hemisphere winter, temperatures at the North Pole will warm to above freezing - 50 to 60 degrees above normal. Huh?

Now this might be the Perfect Storm.

Strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Western Hemisphere, will make landfall very near its peak strength, with sustained winds near 200 mph (!!)

Also ... it went from being a minimal tropical storm with 40mph winds to Category 5 in just 36 hours.

Spent a great weekend re-living some of my mis-spent youth by seeing the two Grateful Dead reunion shows in Santa Clara. Saw old friends, boogied down, and smiled an awful lot.

Oh and the rainbow on Saturday! Despite the rumors, it was not fake. But what an uncanny and cool coincidence given Friday's Supreme Court decision - oh and also the fact that it doesn't rain in California in June. Maybe just Jerry smiling down, lots to be happy about. #faretheewell

Interesting article about subtle experimentation of food choices at Google cafes.
We helped Googlers avoid eating 3.1 million calories of junk food over two weeks.  And what we did in the office works anywhere -- even at home.   #workrules   #google

Approaching 3.5 inches of rain in San Jose since 8AM, with no end in sight. A good soaking for just about anywhere, especially down here in the drier "banana belt" of the Bay Area - on average San Jose gets less precipitation annually than Los Angeles #funfact  

Oh, and this means that since this morning we've gotten more than half the rainfall we got for the entire 2013-2014 water year. Crazy.
