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.
