The bad news is, don't get cocky.
The good news is, there's free water coming out of the sky, along with the opportunity to use it wisely. The bad new is, there was a big fire in the mountains last year (you may remember), and we've got flash flood warnings through tonight for the burn areas. If you live in those areas, the Los Angeles Times says not to park your car in the street.
The good news is, this is normal winter weather for southern California. If you've been here only a few short years you might not think so, but that's because you've known only drought. This is more like it. Good news.
Boz hates it. You'd think a half boxer/half mastiff or whatever he is wouldn't be such a pansy, but a little rain comes along and it's time to start thinking about doggy Prozac. We don't give him anti-depressants. Good news/bad news.
If you need information about road closures, flash floods, etc. you will always find it at Altadenablog.
