We're in a drought here in Southern California and for the past few days we've been hit with 3 rainstorms. I actually think I heard thunder and lightning!
It's a case of be careful what you wish for! We're all floating ... California isn't designed for so much rain. We don't have great drainage systems. Trees are fallings, mud from the recent fires will slide and any minute now, I expect my cable to go out. I'm only hoping we don't have a n electrical power outage -- though I'm prepared. You can't live in Earthquake country and not be prepared with batteries, flashlights, food and water, the essentials in a quake.
There has even been a threat of tornados due to the forceful wind swirls in the area. But this rain is nothing compared to the freezing cold weather in other parts of the country.
It's just that ... well, we're wimps! We're not used to this. Our streets congest, our raingutters clog, people get irritable.
And I know that we're all looking for the ever present California sun to come out.
Like I said, we're wimps.
Just saying ...
