It’s A Sad Day

October 15, 2009


Well, it is officially a sad day here in Orange County.  Well, maybe that’s a little overstating, but still.  It has finally rained.  It has rained for a couple days now.  Wait, before you start getting things in a twist, let me clarify.  If this had happened in Oklahoma, people might have used their windshield wipers.  Here people have their wipers on full!  We don’t get much rain.  In fact, this is the first change of weather we have had since June.  I really don’t count some fog in the morning as a change in weather.  But for real, I don’t know that there has been any precipitation (that’s water from the sky for you ‘fornians that don’t get much of it and consequently don’t hear about it on the news) at all since at least June if not longer.

But, the sad day comes in when I had a few days in a row that there was rain and had to make the decision to put the top back on the Jeep.  It has been 5 months.  I have quite a shirt tan line now too.  But, unfortunately, as the water from the sky (or precipitation) has started appearing, I decided that they couple hours a day I spend in the Jeep shouldn’t be wet the whole time.  Poor Jeep.  Looked real good topless.

PS – Our rain looks nothing like the picture above.

    What’s even better is the weather forecasters who are always on “Storm Watch.” Then, it drizzles and everyone is disappointed. Hey, look at the bright side: We probably just got our quota!
