RAIN and more rain!

Southern California is getting hit with a lot of rain, it is supposed to keep raining the rest of the week, it is just day 2 and my back yard is really flooded. Cricket rings the bells to go out, gets wet and muddy and comes running in, she rings the bells to go out, gets wet and muddy and then comes in, a never ending cycle, LOL. Poor Cricket has had a couple of accidents in the house before I realized there were no dry spots in the back yard. Poor dog has pooped on this green plastic toddler toy that is the only dry spot right now. I think it is going to be a very long week. There are tornado warnings for Long Beach a few hours from here and severe thunderstorm warnings for our area and it was just snowing a few minuetes ago and the freeway through Cajon pass that leads to our house is closed except for vehicles being escorted by hiway patrol. We do not handle rain well in Southern California, especially in the desert!

The weather has certainly been major news lately. I heard about the risk of mudslides in California. Scary stuff.

Hope things improve for you soon. Stay safe.

How scary! Be safe!

It's been rainy here, too, and is supposed to continue raining this week, but nothing like that!

That doesn't sound very fun! I hope the weather improves for you soon!!

Thats a lot of rain. We feel for you. Our back yard still isnt dry. It poured Saturday to Sunday. Yesterday the dogs were just mud. Ugh! I hope it gets better for you all soon. Diana

I knew you guys were supposed to get a lot of rain but my gosh, look at your backyard!! I don't know how you are managing with all the dogs needing to go out.

My dad's parents live in Crest (you mentioned Cajon Pass and I don't know my geography out there well) but are you close to them? They said fire departments were giving away sand bags and that Alpine was supposed to get 20" of rain - more than they get in an entire year!

Stay safe and dry (if that's possible)!

Wow! That is a LOT of rain! It shouldn't last too much longer? Hopefully your field drains better than mine does.

P.S. - I don't think that black bucket is large enough to catch all the rain.
