Drizzle Watch '14 Over

April drizzle brings May sizzle??

'Big' April storm rolled through in two waves, lots of wind and some drizzle. Ok, maybe some rain - .16" Tuesday, .2" Wednesday!
We actually had some winter this morning, frost on the roof tops driving in to work. One day of winter is better than none!

Now dry for the next week and maybe 90s by early next week, back to summer.

Hummer cam current view -


March is our last gasp attempt at our rain season and it looks like there is a tiny chance for some precip to close out the month and maybe even dribble over into April showers!! Maybe!!

Not much showing south of San Francisco.




Hooded oriole visiting the hummer cam this morning.



Last weekend was the big Bird Count, an effort by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society and anyone willing to ID and count and turn in results.

According to the Cornell Feb 20th Newsletter - here are some of the results.

Top 10 most frequently reported species (number of checklists reporting this species):

Species Number of Checklists
Northern Cardinal.......53,540
Dark-eyed Junco.........51,186
Mourning Dove...........44,278
Blue Jay................39,363
Downy Woodpecker........36,766
American Goldfinch......33,396
American Crow...........32,381
House Finch.............32,271
Tufted Titmouse.........31,950
Black-capped Chickadee..30,822
I ID'd 3 off this list - Mourning Dove, Dark-eyed Junco, American Crow

Top 10 most numerous species (sum of the number of individuals observed across all checklists):

Species................Number of Individuals
Red-winged Blackbird...1,570,808
Snow Goose.............1,223,082
Canada Goose...........1,031,278
European Starling......542,477
Mallard................493,774
Ring-billed Gull.......433,823
American Coot..........417,504
Dark-eyed Junco........404,057
American Crow..........328,601
American Goldfinch.....323,672
2 off this list - Junco and Crow

How the results came in - Top 10 Countries
Country..........# Species..# Checklists
United States......643.........112,281
Canada.............234.........12,340
India..............806.........3,195
Australia..........492.........854
Mexico.............658.........451
Costa Rica.........554.........165
United Kingdom.....155.........150
Puerto Rico........113.........150
Portugal...........177.........134
Honduras...........335.........104

India was 1st in species count, Mexico had the second highest species count, Home country had the most checklists!

There were some shifts in bird sightings, possibly due to the mostly frozen over Great Lakes and 'chill' ;)

We lost both Women's and Men's Ice Hockey - We have to keep Bieber?? Nooo!!

Am keeping an optimistic eye on the forecast, rain symbols are on the schedule for next Friday, Saturday. But the %s are beginning to go down as we creep closer. Why is that not a surprise?

Hi BC! Yay, tomatoes are up :) I started with 3-4" pots, one of these times I will try from seed. A couple of the smaller ones look like they have leaf burn, maybe the topsoil I got from a neighbor was a little too 'fresh'. I am hoping the drizzle calms down the soil.

Quick Phoebe update -

Thanks for coming by earlier. I left you a comment over on my blog regarding the increasing earthquake situation. I guess I will leave it there rather than a repeat, if you would like to stop on back over. It has been dry here for a few days now! Rain later this week.

Sorry the Drizzle Watch is over. I would certainly love to send our rain your way, but it appears that you might instead have to hope for August monsoooooons to come more soonly.

Thanks for posting highlights of the Phoebe Cam. You always capture the good stuff. Wait! Does that mean you've been spending your work days watching Phoebe?!

My tomatoes are an inch high and starting to get their first true leaves!

Hi PSP! Fog season should not start until May and go through June (May Gray, June Gloom, as is lovingly referred to here!). But is in 'normal' years, so this year??

Quick update on Phoebe watch - chicks have hatched, new Phoebe is on the job.




It is a bit windy this morning, chicks and Phoebe are going for quite the ride in their nest! A bit like the earthquake, I imagine ;)

Photos captured from phoebeallens.com where there is live feed once you are past the commercial.

Hi! I see you just stopped by so I will come over here. A dry handful of days for us ahead! :) Yes, we seem to have "had it all" this month regarding rain. Just a tad under 9" rain for us this month. Love your "drizzle watch" - when does the fog season start that should put .01" in the bucket now and then??

Regarding the Nicaraguan earthquake, actually our son did hear that at least one person was killed in a building collapse in Managua and others injured. The city is around a half hour drive from him. That is always the risk in these underdeveloped countries. Managua was utterly flattened by a quake in the '70's. But, he has moved on briefly and now is in Costa Rica for a week or so! He needed to leave the country for his visa renewal, so took a bus, the kind the natives take, perhaps with their chickens, not the nicer "more American type travel" bus. We heard he made it but that is about all so far. New adventures in Costa Rica now for him for awhile. I'm glad your family all fared well and had the opportunity to visit about your earthquake!

Hi cp! yeah, I guess .04" is a lot of drizzle ;) And the poor weather people here have to do something! I was just thinking, they may have to come up with a new name for 'storm drains' LOL!
"or mostly what I want, LOL!" - Well that is life, at least it is 'mostly'!

Hi Skye - A couple of months and it will be fresh caprese, and salads! Funny how those little plants call out to us :)

Hey Ylee! Your site was a hotbed of activity last night! We see what we want to see, and it was cloudy, and this is WU after all!! Though, its longevity had me wondering after a while ;)

Drizzle watch '14, LOL! Hadn't seen the news but were they out watching the drizzle? Maybe showing a damp piece of pavement, or a drop of water going down the storm drain?

That is great that you like what you do!!!! Makes life so much better!

I used to love what I do, until the last two years :( But all is good now and I get to do what I want everyday or mostly what I want, LOL!

See what happens when you aren't around, our imaginations go wild!

Hi cp, BC, GG! That's for sending out the search party ;) I hate it when work gets in the way of more fun things - well, maybe not hate ;) it's good to like what you do!

I have been struggling to come up with a new blog but have checked to make sure I wasn't missing any new comments (that doesn't work very reliably, seems to me!) but seems like I missed 3 :(

Drizzle Watch '14 is about done, and yes, we got our drizzle! Hope you got more than I did, cp :) By the way, really liked your last trip and photos.

Wish your state wasn't getting some much rain, BC. That slide was a terrible thing, and still unfolding.

And Ylee! At least you all know what a bad influence yetis can be :P

I have managed to start the tomato/basil garden, at least. Hopefully there will be water to keep them going!

Things are settling down, less lurking, more visiting!

Love the falcon in the tree. Talk about a big bird!

Did Cryptolocker do you in? Are you lost in the UNC addresses and can't find your way home? Did Yeti lead you astray with Tibetan porn?

Thanks for the visit from the leprechon! I'm glad your family is having a good time here! The weather improved since yesterday, thankfully for them. Hope they have found an enjoyable pub and are having a great time and view out of the top of the Space Needle! Too bad you aren't here too. Happy St Patrick's Day!

Today we woke up to eight inches of snow, it clung to every branch, covered the few spring flowers that dared to bloom yesterday, frustrated Mimi who wants to be in the snow to play, gave me the opportunity to enjoy the winter wonderland and to take lots of photos.

Hi BC! ID ten T, that's funny :) A little common sense can go a long way to preventing computer problems - but as DataPilot says "Backups, backups, backups". That's the way to recovery, but it is an inconvenient road back! I think a big part of the problem is that people forget "that a thief is trying to steal your money."

Hi sp! I have not and I don't know why not! It sounds like a lot of fun :) They even had a falcon in a tree sighting ;)


Hey GG! Click Click Click, that how it starts.
Rain? Good for you, still none on the horizon here, but we did set a record high yesterday, 91, joy ;)
The girls are having fun up in the Emerald City checking out Irish pubs in the rain!

Hi DataPilot, Glad you stopped by! Lots of good info about Crypto and being prepared. It was one of our front office Sales pcs that got zapped but most of the damage was on the mapped drives. We will probably rewrite some of our software to remove the mapping and just use UNC addresses. At least that would isolate the damage to one pc in this case.

Hi Pros and Mimi!! Oh no, Mimi with a cone! Of course the pups are welcome here :) I could use Mimi here to chase the rabbits!!


Ylee, that's the last 'Take your Yeti to Work' day I participate in ;) Luck O the Irish to ya!

Hello WatchinTheSky, I believe this is the first time I've ever commented on your blog. I make my living working in IT, and recently had to help someone recover following a Cryptolocker attack. I hope it's OK for me to expound a bit on that topic.

About Crytolocker...

The best defense is an offense. Back up your PC religiously, and keep your Windows and antivirus patching up to date. Don't let it slide for a week. If you don't have a reason to boot a computer for a while, do it anyway just for the updates. Yep, those updates really are that important.

If you're backing up your Windows machine to a file server, make sure that that file server is being backed up as well. Irreplaceable files, like photos, should be backed up using a second means. (I have a thumb drive reserved just for special file backups. When it's not actually in use, I unplug it and put it in a safe place.)

If you discover that your PC has been infected - which, by the way, can happen even to careful people with diligently patched machines:

0. Don't beat yourself up. Becoming a potential victim of an extortionist doesn't mean you're stupid; it means that a thief is trying to steal your money. Be angry, and then if necessary, ask an IT pro for help.

1. Unplug your computer from the network IMMEDIATELY, and shut it down. WTS, you are correct in saying that Cryptolocker will not only encrypt files stored on your local hard drive, but also on any file servers or other network devices that you've mapped a drive to.

2. Remove the malware with almost any antivirus software. (Technically, Cryptolocker is considered "Trojan Horse" malware, not a virus, but you probably don't care what it's called if your machine is infected.) If you or your IT pro has a spare hard drive on hand, replacing your drive and reinstalling Windows is an even safer option.

3. Restore the files from the backup that you made previously.

What if you don't have good backups? Should you pay the ransom?

I, personally, can't think of a scenario where I would. Then again, most of my really important work is living on Linux machines, which aren't subject to a Cryptolocker infection. It's true that many desperate people have gotten their files decrypted after paying the ransom. But do you really want to pay hundreds of dollars to some overseas crook?

Backups, backups, backups are the solution.

Hi, sorry to hear about the ransom ware hold up. Another way they get you besides opening an attachment in an e-mail is with pop-ups on your screen proclaiming Microsoft of someone just detected a virus on your computer.

Do not click on those pop ups. The best thing to do is go to Task Manager (Ctrl Alt Delete) and shut down that web page. Then close your browser if any other pages are up.

Anyhow, we got some rain and now it is just grey and cold. The All Con was lot's of fun though :D

You know, WTS, it could be a lot worse. If you didn't know how to do IT damage control, it could me more like this for you:

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Rick the computer guy, to come over. Rick clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum service call. As he was walking away, I called after him,
"So, what was wrong?"
He replied,
"It was an ID ten T error."
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired:
"An ID ten T error?
What's that ... in case I need to fix it again?"
The computer guy grinned....
"Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"
"No," I replied.
"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
So I wrote out ...... I D 1 0 T

At least you know how to do IT damage control, which is more than I can say for yours truly. Besides, that ability contributes to your job security.

Thanks for the tech update! Until now, I have never heard the term ransomware. Once you explained it, it makes perfect sense. What a nasty screen to have pop up unexpectedly. That would certainly ruin my day/week/month.

Hi cp! I hope the feeder works well :) So far I have only seen a couple male Hooded Orioles and I am almost thinking a young male, but that seems odd that I wouldn't have seen females yet. Maybe your orioles are juicing up in the morning to go off bugging in the afternoon?

Hi BC! Yep, they are leaving Sunday - getting away from the heat!

I have noticed several people who live where there was actually Winter are excusing their scarcity in WUville on getting out in the outdoors and enjoying the coming Spring! Yay! Hard to imagine (from this corner of WUville) what they have been through.

I have been a little scarce due to another annoyance - Ransomware, and in particular Cryptolocker. One of our work pcs was infected by this especially nasty virus. Hopefully, everyone is keeping up to date with anti-malware and prevention for this one for sure. It usually comes in as an email notice that seems to be from a delivery service (UPS, etc) or a bank notice with the 'notice' being an attachment. This is often how most viruses come in.

This particular one, once active, begins to encrypt your personal/work files so they are no longer useful. The encryption cannot be undone without a key supplied by the people distributing the virus and it costs a lot of money (thus - ransomware!) We just bought a new harddrive and are starting over. The damage can spread across your network if there are 'mapped' drives on your system, we had a little of that as well.

Probably the most annoying thing about this situation is the lack of any real concern for this problem by industry. There is not any incentive, really - McAfee, Norton, et al make tons of money 'helping' us to stay safe. PC manufacturers make their money when the virus trashes our pcs and we are not able to repair. Even Microsoft gets money on new pc sales when their OS is installed. The only ones inconvenienced are the consumers.

I have plenty to do without having to be disrupted from my 'normal' work to do IT damage control, grrrr...

Here's hoping no one else in WUland sees this -


At least it's the weekend!!

Hi! The Seattle trip is coming soon now! This weekend is looking to be wet, especially on Sunday. It is wet this morning, but sunbreaks are possible over the next couple of days too. Sunday does look like it will rain all over western Washington. Then for the Big Day on Monday, St Patrick's Day, they are predicting showers. So, for your travelers I would prepare for rain and cool (50's during the day probably) and probably a lot of clouds around, but maybe some sunbreaks too! Maybe the Irish will bring some lucky sunshine! Hope it is a great trip!

Thanks for your comments on my hummer pics!! My camera can go up to 4000 on my shutter speed, so that will be used next time I put my camera in the hummers faces!

We have 9 hummers here, that is a lot for this time of year. Orioles are only here in the morning then I don't know where they go. Their new feeder arrived today, hopefully it will work well.

Anza's wildflowers look to be blooming right now. Maybe better in a week or so.

Hi, bug! Yes, much nicer having the live feed back - updates only go so far, but glad for what Monique did! I see from your blog that there's an egg! Was too busy at work for WU and too dark by the time I was home and WUing to see anything.
Been watching WD on demand cuz we watched Cosmos last night.
Hey Ylee! Haven't been zooming the cam, although it can but not very well ;) still not sure what the mystery sighting was.
Hi, BC - Keeper of All the Rain!! 4 inches, that sounds like a certain Pineapple Express stopped by ;) I believe there may be a fire sale on seed rice from central California!

Ylee will be interested to know that the redwing blackbirds returned to my place yesterday, trying to herald Spring, but it ain't workin.....:' ). It's a wonder they didn't drown along the way. We had nearly 4 inches of rain last week (sorry 'bout that, WTS!!!). It is nice to hear their distinictive song again.

Where can I mailorder some seed rice?

It's going to be nice having a Phoebe and new babies to watch.

While Monique did a great job of posting pics and updates and videos, it just wasn't the same as watching them in real time.

You know? I've never seen an oriole. I don't know if we even get them in SC. I'll have to check.

Ha, H1 - punny Ylee ;) I tried to look through the WU video archive for the H1, didn't see it, but it looked to be skipping frames. Rarely, I see a sparrow on a feeder. And might have been a female oriole - of course, they don't look much like a hummer. Once I did see a hummer close to the cam and it looked much bigger. Is it shorts weather yet?

hey Ylee - hope that wasn't a Accipiter striatus

I've told him not to hang out here!!

Yay, orioles, cp! I haven't seen one since last weekend, but this morning I heard the distinctive clunk of one leaving the feeder with spring loaded bee guards :)

The orioles are here, the orioles are here! Two Bullocks! We got the feeder in the nick of time. They aren't using it yet, it usually takes them a bit to start using the feeders.

Oh a dual purpose nature cam. Way to multi task. Now I'm going to have to check in at night for the spider cam.

Sun is starting peak out from the clouds here. May have to go outside soon.

Hi, sp! We were both watching Spidercam last night :) There are actually two of them (spiders), one for each of the cam tripods out in that corner of the yard.

I was worried that you had killed off the spider because I hadn't seen a web since you posted the capture, but now I see the spider, itself! It's all white and ghostly looking - kinda freaked me out, lol
