For her I climbed the highest mountain!
For her I swam across the deepest ocean!
For her I walked through the largest desert!
And then she left me... She said I was never home!!!

Re: Severe Weather Alert in SOCAL

Oh, the horror!

It was 24 when I left for work this morning. The heavy fog was condensing, and then freezing, on the windscreen. Brrrr.... At least it hasn't started snowing yet. But, given time, it will.

I don't understand the problem - we all know you have a canary yellow rain suit that's bright enough to keep the elements from even getting close to you. Besides you had the only dry but on the Ft. Bragg ride!.

No problem! Dry buns and hot coffee! It doesn't get any better than this!
Today the heavy rain is filling up our pool. Did I mention that it doesn't get any better than this?

No doubt, the harsh winter is upon us!
Winnetka, CA

SEVERE WEATHER ALERT

Forecast Details:

Sun and clouds mixed. Slight chance of a rain shower. High 61F. Winds NW at 5 to 10 mph.

Today I am wearing a long-sleeve shirt under my riding jacket, just in case...
It is definitely the kind of weather that would keep Joe (Messy-13) from moving to California.

Re: Severe Weather Alert in SOCAL

Chicago had the same weather today (Monday the 22nd). 65 and cloudy. A good bit of rain late in they day Sunny Tuesday but only 40. Fleeting moments of decent weather left. Stabil in the tank, but have plenty left in the bottle if early December is decent.

To funny! How about when the weather channel posts an "alert" due to high winds? 25-30 MPH! When is the wind NOT gusting in Southern Kommyfornia?
