Depending on where you live in San Diego and your mood, you either love the already received 2 inches of rain and high winds or hate it depending on whether you are needing to do a lot of driving. Myself, I happen to love it. Every yard is saturated , every street has gushing water. What's that old expression, "When it rains, it pours ". OK, so it is a bit past the sprinkle stage and on the news said it is raining cats and dogs out there. Not literally I hope, I haven't seen one cat or dog since the rain started. I did see a truck getting it's underside washed though. I took this picture with my cell phone , so don't be too judgmental about the quality. My iPhone provides only 2 pixels to work with and I was in the middle of the street when I took this.
This truck is parked on an incline near my office but I thought the amount of water that is flowing into the reservoirs and the bay should help a tinny tiny little bit. Better than the alternative.
We are still in full conservation of water use mode here in San Diego when it comes to watering outside, I do hope people have turned off their sprinklers from the 3 day a week, 10 minutes per day maximum they are allowed.
2" of rain does not a river make but it is high enough to go over to top of your shoes and gets your pants leg wet,presuming that pants is the proper way to describe the dress of the day. At 50 degrees , shorts are not recommended. Women - well, I have no idea how they always stay dry except I know that women somehow know how not to get wet. Maybe a hormonal thing.
As you can see, today we have water. And we are promised a full weeks worth. ( the forecaster said it would have to rain 40 days and 40 nights and then, only then, could we talk about relaxing the conservation of water use. I suspect if it was actually going to rain the 40 days and 40 nights, I would have already been out there collecting animals two by two, yes including all those dogs and cats that were reported raining down on us by the weather forecasters.
In case I don't get back to you, providing we actually get that much rain, I'll bring the animals over to your place in my Ark vessel for a visit. Till then , stay dry.
