Rain!

September 20th, 2005 Posted in Fun

After 5 months, it’s finally rained. And it’s a thunderstorm too! Fall is here. Yea!

This weekend us non-native Californians were lamenting that California doesn’t have weather. The forecast is usually, “Today will be somewhere between 70 and 90, clear skies and a light breeze.” I know we’re spoiled, but when you grew up with summer thunderstorms the weather here seems rather monotonous. There’s nothing to break up the days, let alone start a conversation with.

And since there’s no rain, the smog just sits in the valley crowning the mountains with a sepia haze. Maybe this little rain shower will wash some of it away. But I doubt it. I’m hoping for a nice long wet winter with a smattering of sunny days. And don’t tell me that I should move back to Vancouver.

Feel like you want to do more than just give money? Katrina PeopleFinder Project needs people to do:

  1. Data Entry – Almost anyone with a computer and internet connection can do this. Input missing and found info by hand into a form.
  2. Tech – Automate data interchange between survivor databases
  3. Marketing – Get the word out once search functionality is in place
