Before the days of doppler radar, it was quite rare for a storm chaser to even see a tornado. Let alone catch one.

Just keep throwing the frisbee until it's all packed down.

it surprises me that the trucks aren't securely attached to the bottom of the cars.

Yes, and I expected to see them attached to the lowest part of the structure.

Those separable wheel trucks are hard to believe.

We just got what passes for miserable weather for SoCal: two days running of rain and frequent, closely spaced showers and temps around 50 -- dank. It let up today.

Significant rain this past week should bring us to one hundred percent of a normal annual rainfall, so there is that. The hills will stay green.

Hard rain and 40/50 mph wind, but only 18 mph now.

Basement flooded a little this morning. But I cleaned pollen out of the storm drain and the water flowed out of the basement door and into the drain. Disaster averted.

Now Im watching the breathless weathermen calling this batch of storms passing through. Weird seeing them talk about what they can see out their living room window as they point to their computer monitor radar.

Looks like the worst of the storms are passing to the East and West of me.
