It Never Rains In So. California

But when it does, man it pours! I'm sure people in areas that get real weather are laughing, but for us, this is major weather. It rained for almost 24 hours straight, dropping 1.5 - 2" of the wet stuff, and leaving the streets and yards flooded. The good news is as soon as the rain stops, the water drains rapidly off into the ocean - the even better news is at least 3 more storms are on their way and should drop another 2-6" of H2O. After all the years of drought, we really need this.

So what do you do when it's a school holiday and too wet to go outside? You watch TV, all wrapped up snug and warm on the couch.
And you help get your sister ready to go to the (packed!) movies to see 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' - which was nowhere near as annoying as I thought it would be. Naia loved it and Leia sat still only when there was singing. Good thing for me - since I was holding Miss Squirm Worm - that there was lots of singing.

A few years ago, we were in San Diego. The temp was 80 and what locals considered "rainy", which was this fine mist unlike rain we ever have here. The cab drivers were all complaining.

I just smiled-it was about 98 degrees here, heat index was about 105 degrees with sticky humidity. San Diego (with no bugs either when at the park near the water, when here we would be covered with gnats and Jersey mosquitoes)- we happily and leisurely walked through the zoo, went to Balboa park, all with smiles on our faces.
