Reu's first rain


The drought, 5 months of no rain, finally came to an end today with a theatrical storm descending on LA. It's funny. We were both thinking the same as we sat with Reu, any other day in London and yet it had a rather strange effect on Los Angelinos, dazed rabbits in headlights, not quite knowing how to drive in it. And we too are so unused to it. It looked, well, pretty grey outside. Strange to think these are the first rains in Reu's lifetime.

By Sunday, back up in the 80s again. Glorious. That's the way I like it.
