Yes, we had some rain over the past few days--here in
Although we actually had an Los
winter last year, we hardly had any precipitation here this year till this
And yes, it rained. Some of it was just a steady but light flow. Some of it was heavy, loud, sewer-filling, curb-flooding precipitation.
Whoever thought I'd be so excited about rain!
Yes, the climate has changed over the years I've been living here. When I first moved to
from Pittsburgh, I used to say that when Pittsburgh weather forecasters said there was a fifty
percent chance of rain, that meant there was a fifty percent chance of rain,
forecasters said there was a fifty percent chance of rain, that meant it would
rain fifty percent of the time! L.A.
That's not the case here any longer. I'm glad to see rain that can help keep gardens growing, including ours, hopefully fill reservoirs so we can utilize water in our homes, and more.
And would I like to see more rain here this year? Yes, yes, yes! But so far our meteorologists don't sound entirely optimistic. The storm seems to be pretty much over.
Even so, this is a good time to stay home and write. And plan and plot--and hopefully stay indoors. For now.
