Storm hysteria

balightningsfc011021399It’s been awhile since I posted a rant so here’s a short one, just before we get to the season of good will. I can’t understand why the media and the ordinary folk around are so excited about what seems to me a perfectly normal and much needed rainstorm. We used to have these all the time. But everybody’s yammering about the terrible storm.

In short, it’s a normal California winter day. Tomorrow I want to take a look at the surf on Ocean Beach.
