Odd thing

It's raining


It was raining when I went to bed last night
and
I was raining when i got up this morning

Odd

being July and all,

Southern Californians don't tolerate rain well

Even in what we laughing like to call the "wet months"

(we only got 7 point something out of the 15 or so inches of an average year in 2011)

So what in the sand hill is going on? The cat is not happy!


WATER VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO SHOW AN UPPER LEVEL LOW SLOWLY
DRIFTING OUT OVER THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BIGHT THIS MORNING...WITH
THE COMPOSITE RADAR IMAGERY SHOWING THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION WELL
NEAR SAN CLEMENTE ISLAND.  RADAR IMAGERY ALSO SHOWS A PRETTY
IMPRESSIVE BAND OF SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS...WRAPPING
BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE LOW FROM NEAR THE NEVADA BORDER THROUGH
THE MOJAVE DESERT...THE SAN BERNARDINO MOUNTAINS...INLAND
EMPIRE...AND ORANGE COUNTY.  SO FAR...PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS HAVE
BEEN RELATIVELY LIGHT...AT LESS THAN A TENTH OF A INCH MOST PLACES.
HOWEVER...A HANDFUL OF LOCATIONS UNDER THE HEAVIER SHOWERS HAVE SEEN
SOME RESPECTABLE AMOUNTS...RANGING BETWEEN A QUARTER AND SIX TENTHS
OF AN INCH.  AS OF 2 AM...DANA POINT CITY IS THE BIG WINNER...WITH
0.58 INCHES.  MEANWHILE...IT APPEARS FROM FOG AND IR SATELLITE
IMAGERY THAT AT LEAST THE EASTERN PORTIONS OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY ARE
SEEING SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS.  IN FACT...LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW
OF THE OFFICE...THE SLIVERED MOON IS TRYING TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE.

thank you internets

you are always there for me when I need you.

with that mystery out of the way

There is only a full day of work

and a couple of slippery trips on the freeway

between me, the weekend

and some very south swell
