Crazy Southern California weather

What a difference a few days make. On Sunday it was hot (105 degrees) & sunny. Today it is cold (60 degrees) & we have wind, rain & hail. Right now we are under a severe thunderstorm warning. Which is pretty exciting for California. It's not like Utah, we don't get thunderstorms here that often.

Jesse called me from school earlier today where he said it hailed so much that it looked like snow on the ground. Brandon & I work about 20 miles to the north in Moreno Valley (just outside of Riverside) & it only rained here. But looks like it might do more shortly as the wind is really picking up & the sky is black.

Brandon is getting very excited. He loves when we have wild weather as we don't get it very often. But he is worried about his electronics at home. We have a 30' high antenna on top of our house...hopefully it won't become a lightning rod before he gets home to unplug it.

Brandon said they are closing down the 60 freeway just to the east of us because of mudslides. Looks like the storm is just east of our work & is moving south towards our house. Looks like the worst of the storm will be between Eric's & my house. Hopefully we will get home from work before the worst hits.
