Pineapple Express (Very Wet Weather!)

I'm going to post two pictures since I haven't posted a new picture for awhile! It's been very, very rainy here, and it's been warm for this time of the year. The heavy rainfall has been due to the Pineapple Express. Wikipedia has this to say about the Pineapple Express:
Pineapple Express (also known as Pineapple Connection) is a non-technical, shorthand term popular in the news media for a meteorological phenomenon which is characterized by a strong and persistent flow of atmospheric moisture and associated heavy rainfall from the waters adjacent to the Hawaiian Islands and extending to any location along the Pacific coast of North America.
Here are two pictures from Sunday afternoon:
