01:29 pm - Huh. Weird weather for LA.
I woke today to a long roll of thunder, and drove to work in the rain.

I've been in Los Angeles two years now, and neither year have we gotten proper rain before Halloween! This is just strange.

Nice, because frankly I was sick to death of sunshine and heat, and I'm loving the whole water-in-the-air thing (plus lightening is always cool to watch--in an alternate life I would so be a storm-chaser).

But odd. I wonder what this means for our coming "winter"?

This morning as I was driving to work the radio announced we would have showers by the afternoon. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. Now I'm definitely noticing the signs. :-) First rain of the season...YES.

Interesting. Though wasn't your spring, like, the 3rd wettest spring in LA history? Something like that?

A couple weeks ago, we had Katrina to thank for our much needed day-long rain. Last night it was lighting and thunder and lots of wet. Wonder if Rita had anything to do with that.

It was, yes. Insane amounts of rain, houses sliding down hills, flooding all over the San Fernando Valley....and the rain lasted, in spurts, from early Dec. through mid-April.

But this is early. And still weird. :-)

RE: Rita...that's an interesting thought.

We barely got any rain yesterday, just enough to dampen the ground, but there was some wicked lightning activity over the Central Valley. I live just on the edge of it, so there's a completely flat horizon for hundreds of miles from north-north-east to south-south-east, and massive barrages of jagged spikes were tearing up the sky. It was almost scary, although most strikes were so distant I couldn't hear the thunder.
