Gratitude in Los Angeles: RAIN!!

I was planning on writing another Gratitude post thanks to our friend Debbie Reynolds      challenge.  The Weather changed my topic.

I was showing one of my vacant lots on Benedict Canyon to a potential developer early afternoon, it was a bit cloudy and we had a great chat. I got in my car where my assistant was restingJ). Less than 20 minutes later the skies opened.

I stopped at World Market for some Thanksgiving Decorations and a few odds and ends, as I was standing the cashier started cheering: “…Look it is pouring down…” only in Los Angeles do people get excited when it rains.

I said: “…Oh no I have my windows open and my dog is getting wet…” the Bostonian in me jumped… and ran to the car… Shortly after it the Transplant in me started to be Grateful. We have not had a great deal of rain this year… how wonderful. Then the home owner/part time Gardner was cheering…I do not have to water TomorrowJ))

Diane called me from Petco wondering: did you finish your showing...? I am standing at Petco by the door waiting for the downpour to stop to get in my car…

All day it has been dark, gloomy and a steady rain pour…we are all excited. It brought back memories when the same type of weather in Boston, MA would be depressing. This is a great indication of the same events we look at and have a different perspectives.

It is the same dark, gloomy, rainy day, people on the East Coast are complaining that it is ruining their hair, their clothes are getting wet and the list goes on and on.

Here in Los Angeles people are excited that it is dark and gloomy and it is raining. Same condition different perspective.

Now with that said I am grateful for the long-awaited RAIN we received and are still receiving today in Los Angeles.

You've got it Endre.  Some condition but different perspective.  Amazing how our perspective changes things.

Congratulations on the rain, Endre! Charlotte has been experiencing a bit of a drought (virtually no rain for six weeks now) and we are quite anxious for it now, ourselves.

Good morning Endre Barath, Jr., we haven't had rain in Central FL for a while, probably since Hurricane Matthew, I'm beginning to feel anxious and wishing for some rain. I must admit, not a big fan of rain if I'm out working but love it when I'm home. Glad you got some much needed rain.

Neat post Endre Barath, Jr. I love a good Thunderboomer but like the Bostonian in you I get depressed with glommy skies that last more than 6 hours.

Hi Endre - Although we need it a bit less than you need the rain, most of us here feel the same way about the snow. We got our first taste of the season last Friday.

Endre, The rain is a true blessing for LA and frankly just about all of CA. The drought as we all know has gone on way too long. We are happy you folks are getting all this rain. People cheering in LA does not surprise me.

Bob "RealMan" Timm  here in Los Angeles we do not get Thunder Boomers, in CT, MA, NY and Germany as well as Austria and Hungary I recall having those... here we just get a down pour.... or a steady sprinkling... so I am sure many in LA are not familiar with the term:))Endre
