All Wet in Sunny Southern California

We've had the heaviest rain I've ever seen this week in Long Beach. ALL week. Plus a couple of tornadoes. Plus, of course, flooding everywhere. Night classes (including my printmaking class) were cancelled Wednesday at LBCC. CSULB cancelled classes for two full days. Many freeways throughout southern California were closed off and on through the week, due to flooding. It has been an amazing time and I have to admit I loved it.

Fortunately, the burn areas around the Los Angeles basin did not experience dreaded mud slides, as expected. (Recall the out-of-control forest fires of last summer that claimed many hillsides and homes.)

Today, however, the downpour has stopped and the sun is shining brightly. People are out walking their happy dogs, gardening, and marveling at the clear, blue sky.
