    Happy new year! :roll:

    Woke up this morning thinking it was unnaturally quiet, and it is (big highway near here). So nice once in a while.

    The Chinese Post works in very mysterious ways... I ordered two things from two different vendors via AliExpress about 3 weeks apart, and they both arrived today. :shake:

    Same containership, perhaps? I suspect there must be some grouping, at least, given all the small things of a few cents that they regularly send out with no shipping fee.

    So now we are getting our first real rain in months. Let's see how well those scorched hillsides hold together. Most of Ventura County is on flash flood and mudslide alert - poor sods given how many are displaced after the Thomas fire.

    It's been little else but rain, fog, smog and cloudy with occasional bouts of light snow here for the past 6 weeks. It's raining cats and dogs today.

    Ah yes, but you live in a place that has, y'know, actual weather and stuff. I live in a parched desert that is coming off an historic drought. Good times.

    I want snow for days in the Sierras, so our water issues can be partially alleviated and I can go skiing another week this year.

    That would be swell.
