I think I live in Seattle

It has been raining for what seems like forever…last Thursday…

That’s a long time here in sunny Southern Cali! This is not what I have come to expect from this little corner of the world and I have to say that I am very disappointed. Last Thursday I wanted to go for a run but I couldn’t because it was pouring out. Saturday morning we got a break in the weather so I drove over to the Rose Bowl and ran my 3 mile loop, but it was sprinkling the entire time and my feet were pretty wet…HOWEVER…I had my Drymax socks on and my feet were not only dry…but warm…my shoes were actually flinging water each step I took but my feet were dry and comfortable. I am truly sold on these little gems!

George says it looks like I puked in the picture above, but it is just the wet ground and then some wet leaves. No worries…my 3 mile run did not make me puke…

I also got this cool picture when I went out with my mom later that day…poor downtown L.A. has a lot of clouds!

In addition to the crappy weather weekend we had, looks like it will be like this next weekend too…which is…my first event of 2009, The Tour de Palm Springs. The event is supposed to happen rain or shine, so I am just going to do it and hope for the best. I will get all of my winter gear together and just brave the elements because I AM NOT backing out of this one! Stupid rain and stupid global warming! Anyway, I am hoping that I can get out on my bike during the week since the weekend ended up being a bust. 

Winter sucks, and so does that groundhog that said we would have 6 more weeks of winter…meh!
