Silver Lake Stormwatch: November 12

With various meteorologists predicting half-inch rainfall totals from this storm, I figured that would mean I would find a waterline around the one-inch mark in my backyard precipitometer this morning. But it seems this overnight system proved to be an under-achiever. Still, 0.50 inches ain’t nothing to dismiss, and with it that brings our season’s total to 6.78125″ to date.

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."
