By late Sunday, it had started to sprinkle. This morning (OK, it was early afternoon) when I woke up, the rain was steadier. No flooding was indicated. Still, we got nearly 2″ here! It’s still raining and will be for a few more hours.
April will be remembered as soggy – at best.
I’m not sure how to quantify it, but the last 12-15 months have been the worst stretch of weather I can remember. I say this knowing full well that the winter started like gangbusters, but was nothing special in the aggregate as far as temperature and snow were concerned.
It just seems like we’re always looking a gray skies, and colder than normal temperatures, and wind. Lots of wind. This past year has been significantly windier than normal.
Today, in California, new records were set as the thermometer passed 100° in the Los Angeles area. Compared to what we’ve had, that doesn’t sound bad. In fact, it’s downright inviting.
Maybe my tolerance level has decreased. I’m not sure. I just know I’m sick of this weather… but there’s not a whole lot I can do.
