Post Script -- Later in the news it was said that we set a record today: "trace amounts of rain." We had not had ANY rain here on a June 21 before (at least as far back as when they began keeping records)!
Well, no, of course not, it was a California summer, what did he expect? The benefit of this is that you can plan a picnic or outdoor wedding and be SURE it will not rain. You do not have to have a "plan B" for outdoor occasions. Over nearly 2 decades no amount of me touting the benefits of more than three months of nearly guaranteed cloudlessness has yet won him over.
The following pictures were taken in the central valley of California on the first day of summer. The day before had been cloudless with a high temp of 106F. On the day these pictures were taken we had a high of 103F. Not only did clouds move in, but we also got a sprinkling of rain. So, while this may not impress some readers, this is nearly unheard of in California, therefore I am posting these. Besides, I need to officially record this so that I can remind David that we have had a summer day with clouds!
Personal Note: Nethe, did you send the clouds and rain? If so, THANK YOU!
