The End of the World

Water fell from the sky! In Los Angeles! I don't know if you've heard of this phenomenon but I hear it's called 'rain'. I don't know if I believe that, but it's what the kids on the street are whispering about in reverent and hushed tones.

Seriously though we had Weather, capital W. In fact before the Weather hit we had the clouds. Clouds! I had missed them so! I even had to put the flip flops away and wear my long forgotten Converse today. It was weird and my feet are confused. Not as confused as my cats however, who keep looking out the window and then back at me with an expression that can only be described as 'are you fucking seeing this shit?!'

God I missed weather. I have missed clouds and fall and rain and scarves. It's rather depressing to have sun every damn day. But! It will be cloudy and rainy for the next 3 days. Three whole days of Weather! It's almost as if the universe is somehow apologizing for it being 99 degrees on Easter. This year Thanksgiving will feel like it's located in fall instead of the dead of summer. I won't need to run the AC because I am roasting a turkey. And this? Makes me ungodly happy. Until it is again unbearably sunny and potentially 80 degrees on Christmas day.

Now excuse me, I have to go take pictures of the 'rain' so one day I can tell my children that yes, it's true water falls from the sky, here's the proof.

Good Lord. I will happily exchange the sunshine for rain. It's been raining for so long here I fear I may soon drown.

I refer to it as Weather as well, and can you believe I'm not even in SoCal to enjoy it?

And Christmas in SoCal feels like playing house, like it's not real because it should definitely NOT be 80 on Christmas.

But the rest of the year, I heart the sun and warmth.
