The first real rains in many months have struck the Southern California coast line and it's not over. It is our form of winter. Rain tapping against the window, wind bending the trees and water running down the streets. How nice.
I've stayed in all day but now am getting ready to go out to a dinner with friends from church. No big deal... just an outing.
I have tried to imagine what it would be like if all this rain came down in the form of snow. We'd be digging out for weeks.
Reminds me ... the horrible events in Haiti. Could I survive such horrible circumstances? I suppose I could but it is hard to imagine.
