And so it's here, our winter weather. A relief after last year when, following a few unseasonably early rain showers, the skies went silent. This storm has heft. It has staying power. And it has local newscasters in a lather, braying about the inconvenience of it all. This rain, it's so...wet.
Flooding or mudslides? Yes, let's worry about those, pray they don't happen. But after the drought years we've had and the fire season we've endured, fretting that rain may make shopping less fun (seriously, have they never been to a mall? No rain needed to add to the hellishness...) is either selfish or stupid. Or both.
A kinda boring photo of the pier because at 7 a.m. it's still too dark and too wet to get much more ambitious than this.
