Drought? What drought?

I honestly can't remember the last time Southern California has had multiple instances of multi-day rain. It's been years, if not decades. And it isn't going to be over any time soon.

The current storm, which was supposed to run through Monday, is now expected to go through Tuesday.

And another storm is coming the week after that will last at least five days. I say at least because that's as far as The Weather Channel's 10-day forecast goes.

After years of drought, it's nice to have some steady rain. As Southern Californians have grown fond of saying (on the rare occasions when we would get rain), "We need it." I do feel bad for people in the burn areas from recent fires, because now they have to worry about mudslides. Plus, roads and freeways are flooding, making commuting a nightmare.

Stay dry and stay safe out there.
