A Big Storm May or May Not Be Coming
Weather may be typical SoCal mundane right now, but the Los Angeles Times reports what could be the wettest storm in years is en route for later this week: forecasts call for as much as one to two inches of rain in the basin, which in a normal SoCal winter would qualify as...a normal SoCal winter storm.
According to the article, we saw our last real storm on March 25, 2012, when a reasonable but certainly not extraordinary .95 inches of rain fell downtown. I realized today the mere possibility of a major storm was enough to make me suddenly, inexplicably giddy. It doesn't even matter if it comes or not; the forecast has been dry for so long now, just the thought of a real storm was enough to spark some hope in my otherwise drought-crushed soul.
That said, I'm hoping Ma Nature goes batshit-crazy on us come Thursday...
