From Vacaville, to Davis, to young and old Sacramento, and all the way up in Woodland the winter storm of June 1 blew through.
California, this is not California weather,” said Marilyn Guinnane who drove from Sebastapool to Woodland. She added there were some close calls on the road, “Cold, driving rain, (hail) pummeling my car. I probably need a new paint job.”
Down south at the Land Park Golf Course also got a dose of winter weather. “The greens just turned totally white all over the course,” said course Marshal Rich Reilly.
But it didn’t keep golfers like Pam Eaton from getting into the swing of things, “We were looking forward to some nice warm dry golf; did not get it.”
Eaton played on, which was the same thought for little Elijah in old Sacramento who wasn’t going to let some water stop his first train ride. “Silly rain,” he said.
Eventually the rain let up, and as soon as the sun came out so did the people and ducks at McKinley Park.
However, it was a brief break as the storm clouds rolled in again.
“I kind of feel like I moved to Oregon and somebody forgot to tell me,” said Reilly.
But everyone had their own way of riding out the winter storm.
Maureen Berone is simply staying positive, “Won’t let some rain stop us”
Jesse Madrid in Woodland is staying prepared, “Always have my umbrella in my car”
While Guinnane is turning to a higher power, “I’m going to pray for sun. Maybe do a sun dance; I don’t know.”
