No Rain

We took a visitor from NY and one of Iris' playmates to brunch in Hermosa Beach yesterday. The television weather reports in Los Angeles tend to overplay rain predictions under the impression that it improves their ratings*. I told Bad Dad to ignore the TV and hang the laundry out on the line. Notice Iris is enjoying her hot chocolate al fresco.
No rain here, either.
A pair of pelicans took turns divebombing for fish in the same spot.
Going down.
Plop!

* The American Meteorological Society published a study in our monthly bulletin examining the accuracy of TV weather forecasts. While most news markets exaggerate the probability of rain, the LA market was most egregious. Could it be because rain is such a rare event here?
