Between knitting and working on an upcoming PTF presentation/powerpoint for a community event with John Thackara on Feb 12 in Newport Beach, I see the rain is still coming down in torrents.

Justin checked the rain gauge and we are at about  2 1/2 inches!  WOW.  What a difference a day makes.   Thanks to the San Gabriel mountains, the clouds have just parked themselves over our little valley and it’s raining like cats and dogs.  What a fabulous start to February!

    I’m envious of your rain! Here in Riverside the clouds are just teasing me as they float by, without dropping anything. Sigh. We got a good bit last night, and I’m hoping for more – any days I don’t have to irrigate are good days in my book. Enjoy your rain!

  2. Stacy says:

    Yay knitting while it rains! (I just realized I needed to rip 15 rows of the baby blanket I’m working on – and I thought I was almost done!)

  4. Melissa in Pasadena says:

    Enjoy the rain! Yes, I second the rain blessings to Austin too. We are in a F5 drought, the worse since the 1950’s. But I’ve managed to have a great salad garden without too much city water. Thanks so much for the inspiration. We put out the work for your website and freedom gardeners today at the free 2-hour growing techniques tour at Boggy Creek Farm. We had a great turnout and there are so many people wanting to grow their own food! It’s great.

    Yep my garden is thoroughly wet and really enjoying it. My dogs not so much =) lol

    We had rain and a half-hour long hailstorm in north San Diego county. I’m hoping my lettuce bed is okay.
