And it rained forty days and forty nights. . .

It's not quite a flood of biblical proportions, but it has been pouring for the past four days, which is a big freaking deal for Southern California.  I have to admit that I'm enjoying it; rain is such a novelty here.  And it gives me a chance to actually use an umbrella.  All I need are galoshes and I can go stomping through puddles.

Anyway, I'm doing my best to keep my nose to the grindstone, but so many distractions--the music, the lights, the shinies. . . 

Stay warm, stay dry, stay safe on the roads, and if you have a pair of galoshes, go out and stomp in some puddles.  :)


  1. at least you don't have snow, we have loads of it over here. not good, but might be a white Christmas at least

  2. I just wish that we got more snow instead of Ice in Southern Missouri. I've seen the rain your getting on the weather channel. If you get galoshes just make sure they fit, the last pair I had gave me blisters something fierce.

    Have fun though!

  3. True, Phil. And I for one am glad because snow is COLD.

    And, Moofie, the weather here reminds me of what you'd get in the Great Plains states. We now are getting hail mixed in with the rain, along with thunder and lightning, which is wild. There have been mudslides and flood warnings but not where I live, so I'm fortunate. Fingers and toes crossed that it stays that way.

  4. Thunderstorms are so fun though! I mean, sitting up all night with your eyes glues to the TV as Tornado Sirens scream through the air and your watching to make sure that the rotation is not in your area. Your parent running around in the back ground reminding you where the safest place is to hide, as she packs everything she deams valuable into the same space that is suppose to make you safe (insert eye roll here). Having your grandparents call you to make sure that you know what to do in case of a Tornado even though you have lived in Missouri long enough to know. Opening up the door and watching the pretty lightning and hail, and thanking God that your insurance covers hail damage.

    So yeah, the above is a typical Severe storm for me. Though I wouldn't trade it for all the mudslides that you guys out in Cali are having.
