The pansies seem to have weathered the rains just fine so far, though more rains are predicted for Tuesday & Wednesday ... with additional 'fronts' just behind. The average rainfall in Southern California is just under 12 inches and we've had more than that since January. Of course the last few years we've had less that 5 inches per year ... so I guess this is how 'averages' happen, right?
I feel for the folks who live below the foothills that burned last October ... the mudslides there have already destroyed about 50 homes and there's no telling what will happen when the rains return. Watching the news about the SNOW on the East Coast is pretty amazing too. I feel grateful that the only weather-related damage I'm dealing with is a small slow leak coming from the deck (outside my bedroom) just above causing moldy discoloration in my living room ceiling.
It's the 2nd Monday of the month and that means it's ...
... time to 'connect' with friends to see what they've been up to.
Hard to believe, but
this is happening right now
