It finally happened. Honea Express has moved to greener pastures, or possibly just out to pasture -- you make the call.

I believe it was Milli, or perhaps Vanilli, that first uttered, or at least pretended to utter, those famous words, "blame it on the rain" (bah-bah-bah da baby). What is up with this freaking rain here in Southern California? I LOVE the rain. I really do. We had to leave Seattle because my wife couldn't stand bumping her head on the constant hovering clouds, but me, I loved it. The difference is that it is supposed to rain in Seattle- not LA. In Seattle it would rain almost daily in the winter, but it was really nothing more than a steady drizzle. The rain was so non-threatening that only tourists used umbrellas. You just accepted it and went on with your life. Here, it pours, and your life is uprooted by flash floods, mudslides and avalanches. Yes, the kind with snow. It's ridiculous. This isn't rain, this is ark building weather*. Did you know the hot and relatively dry city of Dallas gets more rainfall annually than Seattle. Fact. Did you know that this is the 5th wettest season ever in CA, and we are only half-way through it? Fact (according to bar patron, possible urban legend). Last month we received more rain in one day than we did all of last year combined. Crazy fact. I don't think 'rolling blackouts' will be necessary this year- but sandbags may be. Bah-bah-bah da baby.
*Needed: pair of puffins, 1 monk seal (female), dozen bunnies (playboy) and 3 cases of Henessy.
