Wouldn’t You Know It.

It’s been about 3 years since we’ve attended any Christmas functions in our city. We were either all sick or had already made other plans on the day they occured. This year, we decided to attend all the Christmas happenings going on around our city. The first thing is a pancake breakfast within walking distance that the boys are really excited about.

Later that night is the Sonata that takes place in Uptown Whittier which I just love. There will be carolers, horse drawn carriage rides and at 6 o’clock sharp and everyone gathers around to watch all the Christmas lights come on. When all the lights are lit up in the trees and on the buildings, it looks just like Main Street in Disneyland. It’s breathtaking. Nothing gets me in the Christmas mood more.

I don’t know if you’re aware of the heavy and rain and flooding that’s been occuring up in Washington and Oregon, but that storm is supposed to make it here by Friday.

This is the weather forecast for Saturday.

Not only has it not been raining in Southern California, but we had less than 2″ for the whole year last year! Now, after all this time, it has to happen this weekend? I checked with the city and was told if the rain does happen as forecasted, all festivities would be canceled. The breakfast is outside because it doesn’t rain in California. The Sonata is an outdoor event and has always gone off without a hitch. Why? Because it doesn’t rain in California. And, to add insult to injury, it’s supposed to get down into the low 40’s after dark. I know, some of you reading this live in areas where you consider that warm. I’m sorry. I’m born and raised right here in good ‘ol SoCal where it’s always a balmy 75 degrees all year round. The heaviest jacket I own is a denim jacket. Oh yeah, and it never rains here either.

Go figure.
