it was a crazy day of precipitation
i've held off talking about our recent wet weather because... well, i wasn't sure i had anything special to add. but wednesday afternoon's downpour was so amazing that i figured i better take some pictures.
i want you to take a close look at the above photo - see that white stuff in the grass? that is hail (additional photo below). see that gray matter where the sidewalk should be? yeah, that's a river. see the van that is waiting to turn out into the road? yeah, water is pouring through his front wheels.
i can't imagine what is going on up in our mountains, and in the communities at the foot of the mountains. i haven't heard anything too terrible yet, but if the rain keeps coming, who knows what will happen.
certainly there is cause for concern at our various runoff basins and water channels across los angeles county.
