Shannon, this is a duplicate of what I had prior to enlisting.  My father sold it while I was in basic. I was caught drag racing the night before I reported.  The cop let me go when I told him I was leaving the next morning.

Good morning Shannon, just a light steady soaking so far this morning, had a nice break yesterday, some sun. It supposed to get pretty good later in the day and then continue through Tuesday, finally getting a normal winter after 8 years, 6 year draught, then a eh winter then another dry one. Our town Hemet oesn't have much of a sewer system so we do get some light flooding in spots, but were survivors, the surrounding mountains, San Jacintos and san Gorgonio's are coated with a good bit of snow SJ  around  85 thousand feet and Gorgonio around 11, 500 ft.
