Yesterday morning the sky was a little bit cloudy but the weather man said the day would warm up to a perfect 76 degrees. Anything above that is too hot for me. So I slipped into my flip flops and headed out the door to work. As I made the 20 minute drive I could see the sun's rays penetrating through the clouds and imagined that there must be angels ascending and descending on each of them. It looked like the beginning of a beautiful day.
By noon the sky turned black and the heavens opened up to a torrential down pour. I love the rain especially an unexpected one but, my first thought was, " how am I going to make it to my car in these stupid flip flops." My car was parked about 50 feet from the building which isn't a long distance at all but, when you're not accustomed to wearing these slippery little things on your feet it can seem like a mile. Thankfully by the time I was ready to go home it had stopped and all the extra water had run off into the drainage.
This morning I woke up to the news of strange things that happened in the night. We have snow on Mt. Wilson (something that never happens this time of year) and a tornado set down somewhere in the Inland Empire that derailed a train. They say that this storm is going to last all weekend long which puts a damper on our plans but, that's OK with me. Now maybe I'll have time to finish those curtains that I started.
