At about 9:45 I walked out of Robins Ribs in Pasadena (helping former mayoral candidate Aaron Proctor celebrate his birthday) and noticed lightning flashes to the east. We called the kids to let them know we were on our way and they let us know they were enjoying a lightning show. By the time we made it to Arcadia on Foothill is was raining hard enough to need the wipers. It is coming down pretty hard now.
The concern in the area remains potential for flash floods in the burn area above Arcadia and Sierra Madre if the rain continues to fall hard. Another concern for those of us close to the foothills is if no rain and there is a dry lightning strike we would have another fire start.
And damn it all – I washed and waxed the wifes car this morning!
Ah…the joys of monsoon season in the foothills.
