We continue to get rain soaked here in Southern California. I think we’re all hoping the end is in sight for one of the highest amounts of rainfall the area has seen in a long time. I will say, though, that I have never heard of California being this green before! So there is at least some beauty among all of the mud. At least that’s what I’m telling myself!
