SoCal was a desert that was converted into an oasis thru the importation of water from other parts of the country. Hurricanes and tornadoes don't normally happen in deserts.

BUT, we are smack dab in the middle of the Ring of Fire - which provides us with the gift of volcanoes, tectonic plate shifts and tidal waves - from New Zealand to Japan to SoCal and beyond.

Interesting to learn those facts Robby..... I guess it goes to show that beneath any paradise there is always the possibility of danger.......


It got rainy here last night.... My kids are starting school tomorrow so it would figure to be a dark day for them. :o

Yeah, that sucks when you miss a race due to rain. I had a similar thing happen to me at TMS a few years back. They ran the race Monday Morning and I was at DFW watching them throw the green flag on TV. That was soooo wrong!  ;)

We've got a brief heat wave and some high humidity going on here. Up over 100 degrees in most of SoCal. But by the weekend it will be back in the 80s again.

I was SHOCKED this morning!

SoCal had MORE WEATHER!!! And it was scary, stimulating, exciting - all at once.

Lightning, thunder, heavy rains and marble-sized hail all emanating from the skies above. It came on so quickly and although it was brief, it was intense! My swimming pool had a layer of little ice balls covering the entire surface. My deck and patio drains were overwhelmed and I had to set up my sump pumps to keep my patio from flooding my house.

This, I understand, is NOTHING compared to what people in Pennsylvania and Texas are going thru. I know that. But for SoCal, it was remarkable!

Hope all of y'all are safe and able to enjoy tonite's CUP race from Virginny!!

Raining, cold, and just plain Blah.  I'm shocked its not rainy in Chicago, usually if it rains here one day it rains there the next.  :-\
