“It never rains in Southern California,” says the song written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood – except, of course, when it does.
It’s raining even in San Diego, raining buckets, or cats and dogs, or whatever cliche about rain you’d like to use. It’s a steady sometimes heavy downpour. We’ve got some flood warnings and tonight’s news will undoubtedly show the shopping centers in Mission Valley threatened by water. (Why people are surprised they get wet when they build in a flood plain…)
My landlord is out of town, but had two workers who know me at the place next day. When I asked for help they scrambled up on the roof with plastic and I’m mostly dry. MzTiz, the tabby who finds people on the roof intolerable has finely come out from under the bed. And I finally remembered I have a video camera.
This is my view off my deck, outside my office. You’re looking down into the canyon and if you look carefully toward the top you’ll see a whole bunch of water moving through a normally dry creek.

I think this is a great way to celebrate Solstice!
What’s your weather like today?
