Hmm. Either I have a realllllly boring life, or LA has boring weather. For days now, the weather forecast has been promising rain. And I’ve been anticipating it like a child waiting for a new toy under the Christmas tree. The prospect of rain has me ridiculously excited.
Last night I went to bed, happy there was a chilly bite in the air and I swear I could’ve smelt the rain on the horizon, but as I gazed up at the moon, the sky was clear. No matter. I knew I would wake up to rain and all my plants and the trees would be singing with joy after 153 days without rain! I pulled the shade this morning to see…. crazy, bright sunlight!
I keep waiting but the rain doesn’t come. All the weather web-sites and local forecasts said it would be here by this morning and as the day progresses, we would get more and more drenched. But now I’m losing faith. The sky is brilliant blue, a couple of lazy clouds in the distance, but they don’t look stormy at all.
I want my new toy dammit!!! Please rain…. come for a visit.
