Measured signals have been considerably weaker than normal of late. A winter storm passed through with lower barometric pressure as well. Barometer has been down to a bit under 29.9 inHg and is rising abit over the course of today on its way back to 30.0. Water spouts were reported down the coast today.

(Next day entry) So I went for a better and more reliable type of snapshot this evening October 12th. As it turns out, I wouldn't say the signals are weaker - as the saints and the angels were singing loudly, however, I would say that maybe the signals have reverted to their more historic levels in comparison to the last several years. So, I'm not really sure if the historic levels are now weaker than normal or if such merely has to do with the storms that passed through. (See: http://theultimateroadtripamericac2c.blogspot.com/2010/01/winter-storms-in-california.html .) The barometer is still rising. And on the television news this evening there were some more reported waterspouts over the ocean - however I didnt hear the story so I'm not sure if they were from today or more photos of ones from yesterday.
