On occassion it rains on the Oxnard Plain

I live in Ventura, California, which lies on the Oxnard Plain. The area is known for its strawberry, citrus, and avocado crops, as well as its spectacular weather. The US government, and many private rankings, consider Ventura the best place to live in the contiguous states.

This weekend, we’re experiencing another unusual wet period, which is definitely welcome. Our reservoirs, and groundwater supplies, need the help.

For nostalgia’s sake, it doesn’t normally rain on the Oxanrd Plain, but instead in Spain.

Fresh Snow in Southern NH

Judging by the railing, we’ve gotten about four fresh inches on top of the six inches that fell a few days ago.
