I take it all back. It is now officially fall in Northern California.

On Monday, I was whining about the unseasonably hot weather for mid November. Well, it rained yesterday and right now on Saturday evening, we are getting a thunderstorm that is not messing around. The forecast is for rain off and on until Tuesday, and this is exactly what we expect from the season that is fall/winter/early spring in Northern California.

We don't get this day in, day out, mind you. This isn't Seattle. But some nice days, some overcast, some real storms rolling through for days at a time, that's the way we know it isn't spring/summer/Indian summer here near the 38th parallel on the Left Coast of the good old U.S. of A.

Hooray for the rain, falling like manna from heaven. I have soup on the stove (home made stock, chicken, vegetables and rice), Latin Guitar music on the CD and a good book (well, several good books) on hand. My noisy a## hole neighbors are also out for most of the weekend so I don't have to listen to the ever-present rap crap and can enjoy the sounds of the rain.

I was in the Cow Palace attending rehearsals for the Dickens Fair during the storm on Saturday. The marble-sized hail drowned out every other sound when it hit the roof.
