117 consecutive days without rain

Yep 117 days without rain no end in sight. todays high will be 78 degrees and its supposed to hit 79 on tuesday. yea i know it sounds good not to have rain for 117 days since the cars wont get wet.. but instead of water all the cars get a fine layer of dust on them the day after you wash your car, and not to mention the bad pollution i have been coughing for the past week and a half.... WE NEED RAIN.

Up until yesterday, we had gone something like 60 days straight of rain. I'd trade you anytime.

we can use some - in fact we could have used some last weeks with those brush fires. Last winter was a bit different in Southern Cal.
