It did rain

It did rain, as predicted.  Here in South Pasadena it rained sideways, it caused a power failure, brought one burst of lightning and several of thunder.  In Los Angeles it brought more rain in a day than had been seen in a year.  By Wednesday, our sunny temperatures will be back in the 80s.

If it had been a leap year and thereby still February, Saturday would have been the perfect revisiting of that once-rainy month from younger years, spent reading and napping.  As it was, March delivered  the wished-for island that rain creates, dropping a curtain between me and anything beyond the downpour.

Wasn't it wonderful? Everything is suddenly green again and looks like February!
A big treat to go to sleep with the sound of rain on the roof.

Erin - It WAS wonderful and will be as more green appears. I do love the sound of rain. xo
