    Remember last year? I'll never forget the photo that made national news that showed Trans Mountain by Kenworthy. The whole parking lot was under water and the gas pumps were partially submerged.

    NOAA has predicted a very strong El Nino this year and some are predicting the most severe one in recorded history lasting through the winter into next spring.

    Already there has been a record number of hurricanes in the Pacific Ocean down by Mexico and the wettest spring on record for San Diego and Los Angeles. We might be in for a very soggy August.

    I'll eventually remember to turn off the timer on my sprinkler system.

    No kidding, thanks for clearing that up. I had a rental house off of Kenworthy and Trans Mountain. That sure looked like the area. I grew up off of Diana between Hondo Pass and Hercules and that ditch on Diana was a lot of fun during monsoon season.
