I know that many areas across Southern California have long reached the saturation point and there are a lot of bad things at risk of happening if the sky spills so much asĀ  another drop. Even so, I was expecting to wake up this morning to enough of a torrent for my collection cup to be veritably runnething over and ended up a bit deflated at the rather paltry amount of rainfall landing in the Silver Lake area — barely an additional inch since yesterday morning.

At well more than 7.5″ overall that’s still an amazing amount to fall here since Friday, but I’d bit into the meteorological hype that today’s storm was going to be stupenedous compared to what’s already come, and that just hasn’t transpired.
