Maybe an honesty path.

 

I check on here to see what California's weather is doing and just see endless complaining from the same person all the time. It's either too wet or too dry or too cold or too cloudy or too sunny. At a certain point it is your general outlook on life that is to blame...not the weather.

 

Maybe my tolerance for pointless negativity is especially low right now with everything else that's going on in the world.

Yeah... funny how you justify that for your policing tactics and calling out hypocrisy.

Nice weather and sunshine helps to make the current situation less stressful. However, it even felt nice to great outside in the drizzle the other day, rather than being stuck at home all day, and I kept my distance away from other people.

 

And when have I ever complained about sunny weather here?

0.95" fell here in Orange with the storm on Sunday night and early Monday morning. It is nice to finally see a wet March again in this area, as Socal has been rather meh to bone dry in March more often than not since about 2004.

It has been nice to see some much-needed snow in the Sierra, though! I am hoping that we get some more late season storms in April before the dry season sets in for the summer.

Cloudy this morning, looking like rain over Agua Tibia Mountain south of me but I can't confirm that. I hope it stays cloudy all day.

That would be good news for waterfall viewing when we visit Yosemite in June.

I can enjoy both sunny and cloudy weather, I don't need one or the other 100% of the time to be happy. I consider it a gift.

Very windy today, but not as cloudy as the last 2 days. Looks like the rain is staying away from here.

I haven't had any rain here in Orange today. As a matter of fact it was pretty sunny with some clouds overhead, but most of the clouds were to the south and east of here. I imagine that the shower activity was more likely over the mountains and possibly San Diego County, but not much in coastal areas here in Orange County.

No rain here.

 

Today is my 12th straight day of working from home. When I take walks, there are still more cars on the road than there should be.

Are the cars staying at least six feet apart?

Next week looks like a good opportunity to get some outdoor projects done, such as gardening or other types of yard work. I do believe we will get a couple of more storms before the season ends, even in Socal. It was surely nice having a March as wet as this March has been, as it has been a long time Socal has had a truly wet March.
