We had our first day of rain in I don't know how long!

And it was awesome. I was looking for reasons to go to the hardware store--and I did three times. Being a handyman while being recently unemployed sucks!

Ouch! I have a Golden Rule to not ride my motorcycle when it's wet! I've got a Yamaha Virago 750. I almost killed myself once in the rain. I commuted for two years from Brea to El Segundo. For the most part, it was pretty fun.

Congratulations on your new car! I hope you get it soon.

Decided I'd take uber tomorrow to bring down my sketch factor. LA drivers are bad enough, include the rain, cell phones, and pumpkin spice lattes. Recipe for disaster.

Good call, nicktsigos!

Need to keep yourself in one piece so you can enjoy your car when it gets here [waves at Jeremy]. ;-)

We enjoy our weather here Jeremy, that's for sure. But, it's been awfully dry. we REALLY need these couple days of rain. Nicktsigos is totally on it, though. Rain adds danger and time to even short commutes--and I'm talking about being in cars!

I plan to go out and drive around in the rain today (the upside of being unemployed and having an awesome car?). :-D

That's the talk of a uk citizen Sting Ray, surely you see that mythical ball more often than we do?
Ok, you caught me exaggerating a bit. It actually only rained two times this year here. The first time we had rain from Jan 1 to July 15. The second time was from Sept 15 to now. Winter in Vancouver tends to inspire a pessimistic outlook but the Canadians in the rest of the country say we are just cry babies.
