With the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge parked over the West in recent weeks, the thought of any rain reaching the ground here in Southern California seemed a pipe dream. Despite the still stronger than all hell El Niño that still exists, the RRR has trumped anything the Pacific could bring.
I knew they predicted some rain today, but I figured it would completely miss us out here. But at 1 as I was headed out to market, I felt some skywater hitting my head. It seems like it has come. Rain has come.
We’re not going to get much. The rain will clear out over night, and back to warm weather. The RRR will win out.
On a different note, can some of you folks in other parts of the country send us some water? KTHXBAI!
