Even here in blissful San Diego we get an occasional rain storm, and boy, this string of them has been a doozy. This week we’ve gotten everything from heavy rain and high winds to thunder, lighting, hail and even a tornado warning. (Tornados in San Diego, you ask? Really, in the past I’ve seen waterspouts off the coast at Encinitas. Fortunately not on this go-round, though.)
While the weather has brought out the hydrologist in me (trenching the shrub beds so the topsoil wouldn’t overwash the driveway) and the nest-maker in me (cooking pots of hot soup on a chilly day) it hasn’t exactly made me want to go running over hill and dale to take photos. But I did venture outside with my camera a few times in between storm cells!
