Odile? Well, She Ain't No Norbert

The Valley of the Sun has been in a dither the past few days.

We are expecting the remnants of Hurricane Odile--just after kicking Norbert out of here about a week ago.

I still saw standing water in a retention basin yesterday. That never happens around here. We live in a desert, remember? People are sandbagging their homes, analyzing forecasts, and watching the skies.

So far?
Eh. Beautiful without the panic--just like usual.

It's funny, because a week ago, everyone was thrilled about the possibility of a huge storm hitting the valley. Then it hit, and we all had to use our unsurpassed swimming skills just to get to the mailbox.

Everyone's on high alert.

What do I have to say about it?

There's a reason the last storm was called a "500-year storm" (or 100-year, depending who you ask). Unless the cycle ended last week, and the clock began counting the next hundred years yesterday, the odds are in our favor.

Maybe I'll be mopping my basement again tomorrow, but I'm putting my money on a nice rain that we all enjoy this time.

Stay tuned.
