I was in bed and asleep at the unusually early (for me) hour of 2:00 AM. That’s when the downpours came to Irvine. It was as if someone had thrown the rain switch. Nothing to everything in a flash!
All the windows were open. Thankfully there was little wind. It didn’t rain in.
Summertime rain in SoCal is the exception. In fact, for our first month in Orange County this is my only run-in¹. Nearby John Wayne Airport reported 1/8″.
Last night while out walking Helaine noted, “The sky looks bigger here.”
Fewer low and mid level clouds mean fewer obstructions. Clouds are often seen when they’re farther away. The sky does look bigger.
We’re going to a restaurant at the beach this evening for my birthday. It should be sunny by this afternoon. I’m looking forward to sunset over the Pacific.
Like I said, summertime rain here is the exception.
¹ – Helaine was out shopping a few weeks ago when she saw a handful of drops on an otherwise lovely day.
