NOOOOOOOOOOOO...not more rain. I wanna go out and play.

it's all good!, we need alot of rain in southern California, we need to fill all the LA Dams so we will not get some drout season in the summer, But we need to get ready for the storms and the city need to do alot of patchings on the road way, that's way we pay alot of taxes in this state.

Just Me, you should have played this week-end while you had the chance!

I'm still psychologically traumatized by last December's storms. I dread the rains coming this week. I'd rather have a drought and water rationing than what we got last December.

Bring the snow!!
