It rained here in Southern California. In July. This is BIG. My family moved to Los Angeles when I started high school, and I have been retired a couple of years. In all this time I don’t remember it ever raining in July. From 1877 through 2009, the average rainfall for July around here is .01″. “More rain fell here in Los Angeles over the course of 12 hours on Friday — 1.53 inches — than had fallen over the last eight months, according to the National Weather Service.”
Because of the drought in California, I am permitted to water my yard only in the early morning on Tuesdays & Saturdays. I won’t be watering tomorrow.
