Scream Roll. (at Sumo Sushi)
Thank you for all your support.
I’ll be raffling off a bottle of wine from our local Santa Monica Mountains starting next week.
So I done DID IT!
244 days and my first 100 miler!
Funny day. Rain a bit, then stop, then rain again.
I took the day off, just wanted to rest the mind, body, etc. We’ll go for a 6-8 mile run tomorrow rain or shine with some friends then go to breakfast.
Going to go to lunch (SUSHI!) in a little while and also go by Roadrunner so I can pick up some pocketfuels for the LA Marathon. I’ll have a few during the week to see how my tummy likes them, but feel the lower sugar and more protein should do me better on these long runs.
Up to 70% of my goal for Worth the Hurt. I’ll be doing a new raffle starting next week.
I’ll keep the week light but lively for workouts. Run on Monday, (Tuesday see the doctor and get fitted for a Tux), Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Saturday is rest and the expo. Sunday I’ll go for a PR.
I have a tab open on the browser, the Javalina Jundred. Just have not pulled the trigger yet. ;-) You all know it will happen.

Quiet now. Lots of angry cells blowing through earlier.
Driving in this morning, saw four solo spin outs on the freeway. So I was happy that most people around me were driving slowly.
Had the first time for the automatic wipers to kick in - cool.
Lots of branches on the road.
A number of roads are closed in the area due to slides and rocks. Another band of rain is due around 11pm.
So we don’t get rain for like forever and then we get a ton all in a three day span.
So it looks like California will drop into the ocean! ;-) … and cool I’m in Category 6!
Really though we will be getting hit by the strongest storm in years here, and we’ve had bad ones, but look for a lot of mudslides, and will hit hard as we’ve also had our share of fires, and the rains with this intensity will cause havoc. SoCal will be pretty much shut down tomorrow through the weekend.
I’m sure the storm will be strong, but also understand, people of SoCal can’t drive in this weather, so the freeways will suck. Wishing it was Saturday, but I will have to make myself to work tomorrow, and a 13 minute commute might be double/triple or more. Let’s see. Wondering if it will be like 1997 and the El Nino storms we had then.
I understand the winter the rest of the country has had, but if this storm is as advertised, it will be a major disaster value in property damage of it really just being washed away,
That picture above is also what I imagine is the front band, the real punch is behind it.
It never rains in Southern California, but when it does, it pours!
Update: Looks like next 6 hours will be pretty strong looking at the future cast. Just dial in weather.com and look for yourself. The water will wash over the burn areas like shit through a goose. Right now it is breezy and very humid, basically the telltale signs the storm is on its way. By midnight, well it will be “storm’n” good. Unless you live here you’ll won’t understand. Flooding will be the norm tomorrow morning!
