California made national weather news this week because of the "ferocious" storms (which, I'm sure other parts of the country had much more ferocity than us, however, ours has to compare to the mild, spring-type weather we've had all winter, which is VERY BAD), and I have to say, no one around here is complaining.  In fact, most of us are out there with our drums and chants for More Rain, More Rain.  It's the first drops of moisture we've had since late November, and let me tell you, things are DRY around here and this does not bode well for summer.  Hopefully it's been cold enough for the fruit though, because they do need so many hours of "chilling" for a good season (we grow a lot of produce here in the Central Valley). 

But rain it did, and quite a bit, thank goodness, although we're still in deficit for the year, it's not as bad as it was.  But after the rain, comes you-know-what:  the dreaded FOG!  But I'm not going to complain this year, nope, not gonna do it.  Because if we have fog, that means we have moisture in the ground, and that's a good thing.  Even though my son #1 is starting a new job tomorrow which will involve a longer commute on the freeway where fog pile-up accidents are common during winter, I will not complain. Worry, yes.

Crooked cat is loving his wet food.  Loves it so much he waits around his dish all day for more.  Problem is, he only likes the juice and leaves the food behind, so of course it doesn't stick with him long.  But I can't feed him 3 or 4 cans of food a day just for the "gravy" on it.  I tried soaking the food in water and a little bit of olive oil the other day, but he wouldn't touch it.  Picky, he is.  I did go to the store yesterday and get the kind he loves most, a tuna in gravy, and this morning, it was ALL GONE, even the meat.  But he's obviously in a lot of pain, he has to stop every few feet and sit and rest.  We'll see how he goes, I certainly don't want him to suffer from the pain.  And he's not gaining weight back, yet, either.
