Black Rain

The rain is here. A nice, huge storm moved up against California in the dead of night with floods, mudslides, power outages, high winds, flooding and thunderstorms expected. Some areas are looking at five to eight inches of rain. Brutal.

I love the rain and the chaos that comes with it. It cleans the filth from the streets. It reminds me of my place in this world. Weather often does that. Powerless to stop it. A victim of its forces. It makes you feel alive ... when it isn't busy killing you.

Enjoy the rain, Humboldt. May this be the first of a very wet season.
