A quick note to any San Diegans reading this. The National Weather Service has twice interrupted my watching of the back of my eyelids in an attempt to recover from Jetlag Part II to inform us, in their dire muffled voice and scrolling bold letters across a red background, that they have issued a FLASH FLOOD WARNING for the southern part of San Diego County until 3:30PM today. I have a feeling that this is the first in a series of warnings that we'll be given over the next few days. Remember, we went half of a year without any rain, so while you may be a tad agitated about having to drive home on the rain-slicked roads, dodging the pirohetting cars, we really do need this. Even the .08 inches yesterday was cause for celebration.
On a quick, unrelated note, gas prices in San Diego County are now averaging $2.47. That's for the low-grade stuff. I could be wrong, but that's about a 30-cent increase in the last two weeks.
