it's water.

We are officially on Storm Watch 2008!

It always amuses me how Californians react to weather. Especially the newscasters. We're supposed to get something like 2 (not 20, 2.) inches of rain in the next couple of days. But if you watch the news for too long you might feel inclined to start building an Ark. It's just that serious.

They're already reporting live from various different places around the valley talking about the expectation of rain and how people are reacting. No rain has even fallen yet. And they'll no doubt be out there tomorrow with their network issued rain gear. It'll be the top story every hour. Like there's nothing more important going on in the world than water falling from the sky. I wonder if they realize that in other parts of the country water actually freezes as it's falling. Oooh, a whole other phenomenon.

After all of this build-up, I think it would be funny if it didn't even rain. Well except that we desperately need it.

If it does actually rain as much as they are predicting it'll mean that I'll be cooped up with the kids for the remainder of the Christmas break. But they're back to school on Monday. I love those little knuckleheads but these 3 weeks have, at times, felt like 3 months.

And I just realized that I just blogged about the rain. Well, this is Storm Watch 2008. What do you want from me?

Listen. You have to get to the grocery store asap and stock up on supplies. You never know, they might have underestimated. It might rain like, 3 inches. And then you'll be up the creek without a paddle. Speaking of paddles, better pick up a couple of those, too.
In case there's flooding.
