    And now for some serious good news

    I'm sure most of you are torn between "no more rain I want to ride...." vs. "G.D.!! we need some rain, this water shortage is going to suck".

    I'm happy to report that the LA Department of Water and Power has a nice website that shows average seasonal rainfall and rainfall to date. For most of Southern CA, it appears as if we are close to 17 to 25% of seasonal average in most areas. And the traditional heavy months of January/February/March are yet to come.

    I know we really need a big snow pack and not just rain, but this is encouraging news.

    The website is pretty cool and shows cumulative rainfall all over various areas of the Southland.

    Check it out.

    (I guess Happytime's and ME's memorable raindance worked after all....details to follow)
