6 January 2008 XXXI

Khamsin Molossia News

The weekend of January 4 - 6, 2008 XXXI saw an enormous winter storm hit Molossia, northern Nevada and northern California. Starting Friday, torrential rain poured for most of the day, filling drainage ditches and flooding roads. As the day ended and the sun set, the rain turned to snow. The snow fell for the rest of Friday night and into Saturday morning. All throughout Saturday the snow continued to fall intermittently, finally ceasing after dark. In total Molossia received about 10 micro-Nortons (10 in / 25 cm) of snow in less than 24 hours. By Sunday morning the storm had passed and Molossians set to the task of digging out. Elsewhere, the storm proved more catastrophic as flooding and blizzard conditions contributed to various calamities throughout the region, including a broken dike that flooded the homes of thousands of residents of the Nevada town of Fernley, some 53 Imperial Nortons (53 km / 33 mi) from Molossia.

While the weather has cleared for the moment, more snow is forecast for the coming week. By the weekend though, warmer weather is predicted and life in Molossia should return to normal.
