Hurricane In My Backyard

During the last rainstorm I had several people tell me, “I heard you guys had a hurricane out there!” My usual response was, “Oh? I didn’t hear that.” Southern California likes to dramatize the weather a bit. I guess any chance the networks get to cart out Dallas Raines, Weatherman Supreme for an extra 10 minutes they take it. Man! What a hunk! That’s your boyfriend. Anyway, as evidence by this picture, I stand corrected. Not only did we have a hurricane, but it was literally no more than a mile away from my house at this point. All the while of course, Lordleiter was sitting in his house mocking all of the locals for over dramatizing the rain. I still say everyone in Southern California overreacts to rain.

    Nope. I mean hurricane. We technically had a hurricane. This waterspout was a byproduct of the hurricane.

    Um. I know that Southern Californians don’t know anything about inclement weather, and I know that sometimes I miss obvious sarcasm, but did you mean to call this a tornado? Or maybe a water spout? Because it ain’t no hurricane.
