The NWS is predicting a series of powerful rain storms to hit California over the next week. If the forecast proves true, the people living below the burn areas should be packed and ready to go at the first sign of trouble (a rumbling sound and the smell of fresh dirt/mud).

I know that often times the media blows these events out of proportion and is on "Storm Watch 2010" when it's only drizzling. Sometimes, though, we do get one storm after another and the result is never pretty. I hope that it won't be as bad as is currently predicted.

Also, if you've never seen a mud and debris flow, here's some footage:

Good thing my parent's house isn't north of Rinaldi or south of Ventura then I miss LA right about now because its already raining here in the Bay Area, but if it isn't any different, might as well stay put.

We do need the rain though, even if it lasts for a week or two.

We're not even halfway through the week, and two people have died, a tornado and water spouts were spotted, the Long Beach Freeway was completely flooded, and now almost 500 homes near the burn areas are going to be evacuated tomorrow by 1:00 p.m.!
