It’s raining, it’s pouring…. Zoey the Cool Cat is bored

Did you know?

El Cajon, California, gets an annual average of 13 inches of rain. My front yard has received 9 inches in the past 36 hours. If we can get just 4 more inches today, we can be done with rain for the rest of 2018! Yahooooooo!

My succulent landscaping project has been put on hold, and considering how waterlogged the soil is, I suspect it will be several weeks before I will be able to resume landscaping.

Zoey the Cool CatFollowing is a short video of the
rain the morning of January 9, taken from my home office, where Zoey the Cool Cat sits sadly & silently on an office chair, staring out the office window, wondering where all the rabbits, squirrels, lizards & birds have gone, & wondering what that cold, wet
stuff is that falls from the sky & makes a complete mess.

Worst. Weekend. Ever.

Out & About

This past weekend was my worst weekend ever since I arrived in San Diego on April 27, 1993.

Two consecutive days of rain.

Hard rain.

Lasting for hours and hours.

Two wettest July days in San Diego ever in history.

Making it the wettest July in San Diego ever in history.

The San Diego Padres, who claim to be a professional baseball team (current record 43-49, 9½ games out of first, but on a 4-game winning streak), first time ever in history rained out in July. It was their first rainout since April 4, 2006, and only the seventeenth rainout in their 47-year history.

Long-time readers know that one of the best places to go in San Diego when it’s raining is Ocean Beach.

Here are four pictures taken during the rain, thunder, lightning, and high winds:

I stayed until dusk when lights started coming on, and as I was walking back to the car, I saw this business sign:

I guess the only thing to say is, “Bless you!”

Let the rain come

Out & About

It’s supposed to rain in San Diego this week.

No.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

How many times to I have to tell Mother & Father Nature that it doesn’t rain in San Diego in April?

No.

Just no.

When it does rain, though, people like me have to get out and about to experience it.

Here’s a 45-second video of some of my exploits last time it rained:
