    Rained a bit here in Anaheim. Enough to wet the streets and leave a little water in the gutters.

    Hobo Mud Bog awaits!!

    The ground is shiny here and looks like we may be getting wet again when I’ll be smoking the turkey outside, actually looking forward to it.

    10 minutes. It rained for 10 minutes. That's it.

    Better than nothing, I suppose. I'll be thankful for that.

    At 11:30 last night I took the doggies for their walk. It was less than a a mist with tiny, tiny sleety little snow flakes. I got my hopes up but this morning t looks like it barely rained. I had such big hopes....

    No rain here in AZ, just streky clouds. Glad you guys at least got the dust removed and the garden watered.

    I think it rained? But I didn’t a actually witness it. It could have misted? Or maybe sprinkled? It could have just been due now that I think about it. Well it’s something, I’ll call it rain since it sounds better, and today is a day to give thanks. :).

    Thought I was going to get to do some trail maintenance in a closed park this morning, but Aliso was open, so my brother and I were forced to ride.

    Great dirt with at least some moisture - so I am thankful for that. And now to commence masticating comestibles. :thumbsup: :confused:

    Dallas Raines isn't sounding as excited about this approaching rain storm as he was a few days ago.

    Do not pretend to be a bigger fan of Eyewitness news than I am. I drive past their studio on a regular basis. Heck, I've even seen Dallas around town. He's a local.

    So, stand down. I urge you.
