I remember back in 79 the rain storm we had. My Mother's girlfriend visited the Summer from the Mid-west. It poured, tundered and lightening almost all Summer while she was here. She stated, thinking So. Cal. was sunny and never rained, but was no different than being back home. When she left to go back home, stated she'd. never come back, and she never did. That summer was truly wet! Another rain, lasting about a day was about 2004 or 5. I opened my livingroom shutters. which faced a golf course, sat on the coutch, and watch lightening bolts with thunder, hit the course grounds. The rain was abundant and just pouring down. I basically was enjoying the scenery, plus rain. Really haven't had much rain since. Very dry here. Would appreciate more rain like that again.

We have been told, in California to lower our AC unit on hot days so we won’t overload the electrical grid, and cause a black out etc., but simultaneously we are told to trade in our gas cars for a electrical car.💯🤨


So sick and tired of the heat and want it to cool down once and for all!
