It's supposed to rain today, but I thought you-all would like an idea of what February in the California desert is like. We're not really the desert. The local environment is classified as an "inland coastal valley". How's that for an oxymoron? I do live in a valley, we are about 60 miles from the coast, and we get the fog from the ocean ... sometimes. Sometimes, we don't, like when it's over 100F/40C. Our average rainfall is only 14 inches/35 cm a year.
