First Storm of the Season

Today California is being hit by the first storm of the season. After five months without rain, the wet season has finally begun. The powerful storm impacting the state today has the potential to drop up to eight inches of rain in spots. Here in San Luis Obispo, the rain is falling in drenching, wind-blown sheets.

The photos here show colorful poison oak leaves in Poly Canyon and the now-flowing Brizzolara Creek.

Poison ivy and poison oak are so beautiful this time of year.

I do love the stormy beginning of the rainy season. Where I grew up in Colombia we had some great great storms this time of the season.
