Sorry...this sounds so trite, but rain where I live can be anything but. I live in southern California, and they are forecasting a big storm to slam the coast over the next couple of days. We just moved and now live near the Malibu/Thousand Oaks burn areas (and are not too far from foothills of mountains that could get up to 10 inches of rain in 36 hours), and our home we are still trying to sell is on a coastal hillside further south, with a steep slope across the street. Fortunately, the winter has been very dry, so things should be okay, but I was on pins and needles last year with all of the mudslides and slope failures around us (our home is 15 mins. from Laguna Beach). I got to where I couldn't even sleep each night it rained...kept having nightmares the hillside across the street collapsed. Please, could you think of us over the next couple of days and pray that our home stays safe and we don't get hit too badly in the house we are renting now? The house should be okay, but we have an ugly drive to work and my daughter's school, that we've never done in inclement weather yet (but it's up a steep grade to start and then into a valley that had a lot of fire/burn areas that are very susceptible to the rain). I am praying everyone out here stays safe, and Mother Nature doesn't get too angry. I really don't need any more stress in my life right now. Thank you so very much. C.
