Waiting for rain

View from my room

It's been raining like mad in the Bay area and northern California today, gale force winds and flash floods, power outages and fallen trees.

We're expecting the same storm to hit southern California late tonight and most of the day tomorrow.

I'm driving from Riverside to Los Angeles tomorrow, and will probably be in the thick of it. My planning went awry - early reports of the storm had it hitting today and easing by tomorrow, which is why I decided to come to Riverside last night for an appointment this morning.

I'm here in a pleasant enough motel room, waiting to hear rainfall begin later tonight. I'm trying to plan when to head back to LA - surely after the peak of rush hour has ended. But what of the storm?

I'll just have to wait and see.

We was misinformed?

We got almost all our rain during the night. No power, but all our trees and fences are intact.
