Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

OMG!!! It is raining in Southern California!!!!

All the local media outlets will have a frenzy with onsite reporters reporting local residents opinions of the "Storm". 

Having spent 1969-1980 in Pensacola & Jacksonville Fla. I know what a Storm is. California Storms are called "Liquid Sunshine" in Florida. A Florida Storm would be called a Monsoon & a hurricane would be called Armegeddon here in the Golden state.

The only thing that really makes storms so bad here is the incompetent drivers trying to maneuver around as if the ground were dry. Not to mention pour drainage and irrigation that could be remedied with more funds to Public works projects. But, that is political argument that I don't like having.

LOL!  Well we just sent you some liquid sunshine so you could have fun people watching in the rain!

Oh...it's raining Toyota Prius autos up here, we could use a good Monsoon to wash them away.

Pretty sure I could fit one in the back of my truck. 

I live outside of Pensacola. We just just dodged the bullet when tropical storm Karen dissipated. It was a pain to have to be prepared, If you live within a few hundred yards of the bay, and only a few feet above it, You worry when there may be a surge along with maybe 10 inches of rain swelling the rivers. Our place has been fortunate in the past with homes flooded to the roof just a mile away. We have to take these warnings seriously. We own properties out west to retreat to as climate change worsens the floods and storms. But, it's hard to leave the whole family behind. Recently, we have talked about the possibility of moving permanently to one of our favorite areas in North Georgia. Atlanta is an area with lots of opportunity and if a young person is thinking long range, it should be considered. 

The aftermath of heavy rains in the West causing flooding is a direct result of mismanagement of public lands.Building in areas without thinking of the detriment to the environment and deforestation for profit is resulting in more frequent fires of greater magnitude. The forests are clear cut, leaving debris on the ground creating fuel for fires that will be there when the next clearing adds to it, I've seen areas where the woods are cleared of naturally occurring regeneration of native trees by so-called controlled burns that is simply "busy" work that does more harm than good. Then the trees left standing are harvested and fast-growing hybrids are planted in unsightly rows for the next profit taking. The original diversity of plants and animals will never return. Oaks that provide food for many animals are poisoned or cut down because there is little profit in slow growing trees. Man has done a thousand times more harm to our environment than Mother Nature has. She is only reacting to that. But, we still have people who deny Climate Change. It's here folks. Make long range plans for surviving it starting today.   

Check that link out Clay we were starting to discuss some of this just last year!

glad you are getting some Brad..Ron Cooper just told me the same thing.. Am I mistaken? I thought it never rained in Southern California?

Thanks for the info Steve, I liked the other discussion, Very informative. 

YW Clay, here is what scares me.... California in a drought =major food shortages!

Why is it I don't feel sorry for Brad? LOL!

Yep, it rained yesterday. Whoopdedoo! And, our local mountains also got a light dusting of the white powdery stuff - SNOW!

It's hilarious when it rains and snows in Southern California. The local television channels make a big production out of it. The Reporters stand in gutters on the street with trickles of water running over their rain boots to illustrate the ferocity of the storm, as the News Anchors and Meteorologists excitedly proclaim that we are on STORMWATCH!

High drama at its best! I love it! 

 

Looks like some one was desperate for her to stop! LOL!

One year later and not much rain, if any at all. California is officially having a drought. Which sucks, because that means I can't wait around until it rains to rinse all the dirt and dust off my truck. I have to wash it...err pay someone to wash it. Oh well.

I sure wish you all would get some rain just to keep the fires down!  Oh and wash the dust off that truck
