StormWOWtch: December 15

If you were in the vicinity of Silver Lake about 4 p.m. today did this Vicious Little Storm Cell That Cried blindside you, too? Dang! Sure, it grew overcast and colder and a little lightning-and-thundery a few minutes before the skies opened up, but who knew they’d open up with such a vengeance!? And then scoot on outta here.  In the span of barely 20 minutes, it was over, but not before dropping just shy of a third of an inch onto our backyard.

I’m calling it 5/16ths or .3125″ officially, which brings our season-to-date total to 13.364″.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. 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."
