Southern California South Bay: the rain at 11pm. Wow! That was awesome!

Just when I thought it couldn't rain any harder, it came down harder and louder.
More please! If it all drops here, they burn areas won't have so much to deal with.

1. Orange County got a good one

this morning. Good hard rain plus hail. Probably the same storm. Unless we're in for a other one. That would be even better!

2. Heavy fog AKA bleeding damp here in SF.

 

We could use more rain.

3. Less opportunity to capture it, however, in the lowlands. . .

It plays havoc in the hills, but until we can develop the means to absorb it more efficiently here in the city, we need it in the hills and mountains so we can detain it behind the dams and percolate it into the aquifers.

5. Oh, yeah -- every drop we get these days is welcome. Did you see the "snow" in Huntington Beach?...

It was mainly hail, but it certainly looked great. Check out the slide show here:

7. Crazy weather. A couple weeks ago HB was sweltering in the high 80's.

8. And the article with those pictures says it'll be 80 again by the weekend. . .

But of course, typical California image, in one of the pictures you can see the hail and snow on the sand and surfers in the background waiting in the water for the next wave.

10. Sweltering in the high 80's? In a couple of months we'll be begging for that kind of cold front....

in Florida.

11. Yeah, but you'll have the bugs and humidity to distract you from the heat.

13. Yes!

Actually, I used to live there. I wish I would have seen that live! Pretty awesome.
We had lots of rain, but no hail (that I noticed). and a double whammy of thunder that bowled me over it was so loud.

15. Thanks! I've never heard the term gully buster? But it sounds like a downpour.

9. It poured for a while in north central NM, too

Our 9-10 inches of snow from Friday and Saturday was gone on Sunday, thanks to a bounce back to 60+ degrees when the sun came back out.

Tonight, it was heavy rain for a while, plus light rain on and off.

We needed it all.

16. How's the drought situation? I read in the L.A. Times last year that NM was doing vy bad.

17. We are. The snow Friday-Saturday and last night's rain helped a little

but there still isn't much of a snowpack on the high peaks and runoff will be sparse, meaning farmers here and in Texas will have a tough time irrigating their crops.

Things have been tough here since the early 90s. It's going to take a long time to reverse the damage, decades of slightly above average snow, and I don't see that happening in my lifetime.

It is sad. However, at least nobody is looking at me funny because I refuse to have a lawn.
