One of the beauties of our mediterranean climate here is that we get basically no rain during the summer. This summer was dry. And by that, I mean that we had--barring a single sprinkle in October--exactly zero picoinches of rain from sometime in April until saturday. Then we got over 1,200,000,000,000 picoinches throughout the day. So:
