Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

And It Never Rains In Southern California...

I never understood that song as a child.
Still don't.
Must be missing something.

Yes, California had seven days of straight rain.
Yes, we made national news... or so I was told by friends in Texas... not watching national news, I'll have to go along with what they told me.
Yes, we had mudslides.
Full rivers.
Full creeks.
Full streets.
Flooding.




And almost self launching boats.



I didn't mind the endless rain.
The wet cockpit.
The wet walls.
The wet floor.
The puddles.
Even the driving.

What I did mind?
The endless talking about it.
The discussions.
The amateur weathermen.
"The low is here.
It will bring in more rain."
No s##t.
It's rain folks.
Water.
It falls.
It stops.
Then it does it again.

A statement like that "never rains" one is only asking for the hand of fate. I know what you mean about the weathermen, we get that during Tornado season and then if there is a icy winter storm coming our way.

Blame it on global warming. Whatever you traditionally expect anywhere will be different. We'll just have to deal with it.
