Rain, Rain and More Rain

Well, I've been saying for a long time that SoCal has been needing some rain. We sure are getting it. So far we have gotten about 1.6" of rain in the last 18 hours or so. That's a lot for us. And they say that the storm passing through today is NOT the biggest one of the 3 or 4 that are coming through. They say Wednesday will be our biggest one.
Right now the rain has paused and the sky is lightening up some. I has been so dark and gray most of the day to where I've had to have the lights on inside to see anything.
They came over the television right in the middle of my watching "The Young & The Restless" and said that we were in the middle of a flash flood watch. During the height of the storm that was passing over at that time, I jumped in the car and drove about 1/2 mile down the street from our home to where the usually bone dry Santa Clara River runs through the Santa Clarita Valley. I took a short video and a couple of still photos of the river to send in to our local CBS weather man and thought I'd share them with you.
