Thanks, Dawg. The weather reports are calling for a bit of rain in SoCal in the next few days, hopefully those dark and stormy looking clouds will return and give us some rain....

What a striking sky, Cheryl! Hope you guys get three days of nice, gentle rain, but I bet you all would be happy with three hours.

Pretty, GQ! Is that a Catalpa tree in the picture? The pods hanging from it look like the "lady cigars" I remember for a tree in my childhood neighborhood.

I am praying they give you a lot of rain. Specially in the food valley.

They have a few trees like that in front of the Federal Reserve Bank and those pods are a nuisance when they begin to fall. That is a very high foot traffic area. They now have a maintenance man out there a couple of times a day cleaning them up after a few folks have slipped on them and got hurt. It is a beautiful tree otherwise.

They don't need rain in the valley. They need it in the mountains so the aquifers can be refilled for irrigation in the valley.

Thank you, CG, Addie, and GG. We'll happily take whatever we can get.

GravyQueen, that's a pretty sunset pic.
