How Selfish Of Me To Be Disappointed…

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 as  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.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
