I's Raining in Southern California!

Hey there.  Big whoop de doo, right?  Well, it's kinda a big deal where in the land of sunshine.  Every time we get a little bit of rain, the news reports jump on the "story" and all you hear is "storm watch (insert year here)".  It gets a little annoying, especially when the news reports are 30 mins long on a light drizzle.  Well, that's not the case this time around.  It really is pouring and since it's coupled with lightning and thunder, most of the "southland" is a little rattled.  I love me some rain.  Its great that it's pouring over here.  We don't get much rain and it's great to see that we're finally getting some substantial amount of rain.  The problem though is that we're getting high winds with this storm.  I live in the Long Beach area and I'm getting word from twitter friends and coworkers that a tornado warning has been issued for the city of Long Beach.  Tornadoes?  In California? I don't ever remember there being a tornado warning that would pertain to us.

My wife and kids are a little rattled.  She's always been one to keep an eye out for lightning and thunder.  The last time we had a thunderstorm, the kids thought that there was a monster outside the house.  lol  Things can get pretty ugly pretty quickly.  Now, I'm a little concerned for our little one.  He's just getting over a sickness and now we're getting hit with this damn storm and it's making me feel a little uneasy.  We cover him up the best we can, but it's never a good idea to take a baby out during weather like this. 

I'm not much in the mood to work today, but I got a meeting in 30 mins...  I'm hoping the rest of the day will fly by so that we can get home.  Later!

Stay safe guys. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Believe it or not, what you're getting now is scheduled to hit the East Coast on Thursday. Thanks a lot Vic...

Hope the weather lets up for you soon. Stay safe and dry.

Well it was only a couple of years ago that some parts of Southern California got their rainiest October ever, so it hasn't been that long since it's rained here in the fall. Typically the fall season is pretty dry here, but it is quite variable so some years it rains and some years it doesn't. We could be seeing some effects from global warming, which forecast the climate of Southern California to become drier, but it's really to early to tell if that's what's going on.

I live in southern california and i've had pepper plants keep up and producing for over a year. Now most of my bulbs - tulips ect do not survive unless I dig them up and store in the fridge. Whereas when i lived up north I could leave them in the ground. So it's just a trade off.
