We woke up this morning to the unfamiliar sound of thunder. Unfamiliar because the last time we heard it or saw lightning was years ago. In So Cal we typically do not receive any rain whatsoever from around March until October or November. Even more surprising was the fact that this was supposed to be a very dry rainy season. So much for that!
Today we experienced heavy rains, hail, high wind gusts plus thunder and lightning, which the dogs always enjoy so very much. They run outside, stop on a dime, return and howl at the strange monster who is certainly out to destroy them!
This storm is stationary, spinning right above us, and should continue to last through Thursday. My lawn and fruit trees love it!!!
Here are a few photos. Some I took and some I got from our local news station's website.
