The stormy weather will come in waves

This weather headline was almost enough to wake me up this morning

I read on

... LATE WINTER STORM TO IMPACT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA THIS WEEKEND...

A COLD LATE WINTER STORM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE SLOWLY THROUGH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LATE FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

I have some books to read, some soup in the freezer, the garden is planted (sort of) and I really like the rain.

It's like an old friend that doesn't stop by the house enough to really catch up.

Specially this year

THE COLD FRONT AND HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION WILL ARRIVE SOMETIME EARLY SATURDAY OVER NORTHERN AREAS AND SPREAD SOUTH THROUGH THE DAY. WIDESPREAD MODERATE RAIN AND SNOW SHOULD END LATE SATURDAY NIGHT WITH PERIODS OF MODERATE TO LOCALLY HEAVY SHOWERS THROUGH EARLY MONDAY

I'm looking forward to this!

To the point where if it doesn't happen (like so many other times this year) I'll be inconsolable.

Which is pretty weird now that I write it down. I mean really

A little too much "wearing my rain gauge on my sleeve" to be really healthy I think.

But there was more

OTHER ACTIVITY: THERE IS ALSO THE POSSIBILITY OF A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WITH SMALL HAIL AS WELL AS WATERSPOUTS OVER THE COASTAL WATERS. THIS STORM COULD ALSO BRING HIGH SURF TO SOME BEACHES. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO MOVE OUT OF THE AREA LATE MONDAY OR MONDAY NIGHT WITH FAIR WEATHER RETURNING BY TUESDAY.

PRECAUTIONS: THIS WEATHER COULD BE DEADLY FOR UNPREPARED CAMPERS OR HIKERS. AVOID TRAVEL IN THE MOUNTAINS IF POSSIBLE.

Lions and tigers and bear. Oh my!

I used to like to surf in the rain, back in the day, now rain washes so much toxic dust of the land that it's dangerous. Well if not dangerous then ill advised.



So this is the plan.  Reading some books, drinking some tea and watching the rain

Steve & Cher - It's been so long since we had a nice rain and we might not get too many more chances this year.

Lauren - Bolsa used to be the call after a rain but since they added the new drainage it's just as bad as everywhere else. Too bad. Tea indeed!

Nice hot herb tea sounds great too, and the sound of the rain. . . nice!
