Fresh Earth, Southern California

Ever since I moved to Southern California, I've been hearing nothing but bad news about the drought conditions.  County after county has been placing restrictions on water use for non essential activities and Gov Brown has even declared a state of emergency.  Fire season has started way early and already thousands of acres have burned.

But today marked a day of relief for the parched land.  Today we had a THUNDER SHOWER!!  

Neighborhood kids were out in the parking lot despite a sky full of dark clouds, thunder and lightning. Although the temperature didn't drop that much, it has become a bit more humid. 

This is of course very welcome relief for Californians who have been praying for rains.  If it's El Niño, then welcome El Niño!!  We've been waiting for you a long time!
