It’s actually raining in Southern California. As you may have heard. But that’s no reason to rashly turn off the sprinkler system!
Our road, looking toward the 14 freeway. It floods when it rains very much. I kind of like that they just bulldoze away the gravel that washes into the road.
Another view. As you can see, lots of the arroyo bed has washed onto the road. While I was standing here, someone rolled down his window and asked if I was in trouble. Love Acton.
Right after I took this shot, a man came out of the brush on the left. He was all excited. He told me he’s a painter and he has painted in this arroyo many times, but he’s never seen it with water flowing in it before.
Okay, now it needs to rain enough to move all this pine tree stuff off the drive and down the street.
Noooooo! The faux flowers and the metal rooster were blown around the corner of the garage and down the sidewalk.
[shakes fist at sky] How much of this destruction are we supposed to take?
Okay, Midwestern friends. Sorry.
