It "never" rains in Southern California. Does that sound good to you?

If so, why so? If not, why not?

a wise man once said

God didn't make the little green apples,
and it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summer time.

It not only rains but occasionally floods. During some rains, mudslides may and do occur, in part because of forest fires in those areas, but also in other areas because of unstable land.

The rain in southern California has - in the 40 plus years I lived there - been in relatively low amounts if you accumulate the numbers over a year's time, but in my experience, some of those rains lasted for days. I remember one four day set of storms.

As many know, California as a whole has been going through a serious drought in recent years.

No, the song actually points out that it doesn't rain, it pours.

@Lordyaswas,
But only when it pours.

@ossobuco,
I remember a four day set of storms.

We called that the marvellous summer of '76.


Looking at Set's video of the lanscape sliding by, it certainly reminds me of Southern Spain, or even Portugal.

I'll have to get over there soon.
