It's raining in the East suburbs of the San Francisco Bay Area! It's a slow and steady Seattle-style rain, and it's been happening since before I went to bed last night. This is exactly what we needed. Hopefully it will saturate the ground and prepare it for more rain. I don't foresee and flash floods from this rain. But the highways are slick, and I'll be driving slow on the way to class. I just heard on the radio that it's raining like this throughout the Bay Area. I hope it continues at least through the day.

It looks rather pleasant, I like a rainy day. It's especially nice when viewed from indoors.

We had a slow steady rain for about 14 hours, then a break, then a dramatic thunder storm this afternoon. Now all is quiet. I enjoyed it all!

That's the most useful kind of rain: slow and steady.

No rain? Doesn't Pakistan get monsoons during some times of the year?

That looks like a proper English rain to me! Glad you put your plant out on the balcony to have a good drink.

@Jessicalynnt Did you experience "too much" rain recently? This is the first we've had in months.

That slow, gentle rain would be just what you needed I would think. Apparently we had quite a dry winter here. We've had some light rain since we got home but we're moving into summer now. What with being away, we've missed out on winter altogether.

Yes, this is just what we needed. But of course we need more. Will you have a garden this Summer? Ours (at my newer place of work) failed, due to the drought.

Rain cools things down a bit. We've been having sunshine. I wouldn't mind some rain night. I can get some pretty good sleep while it rains.

Rain is great for sleep. Alas, it's clear here now.

I had a California friend on facebook post that the first real rain of the season was starting up...his exact words were 'First "real" rain of the season and within 5 minutes on hwy 101 I'm able to see a handful of the morons that will be causing the accidents today'

We have fog which will be no fun as I need to do 120 miles this evening in it.

Take it slow! We have fog near the coast, and another kind of fog inland.
