Sure, we saw some lightning on Saturday night. But not much. Not much at all. And we were told there would be lots of thunder and lightning during this weekend's limp storm. Instead, said powerful storm headed down south and pounded the Grapevine, resulting in a rather lovely Sunday afternoon here in San Francisco. (We walked around Union Square with iced espresso! The mind boggles.)

Anyway, once again we're promised a stormy week ahead, with light rain today and tomorrow and heavier downpours in Wednesday and Thursday. Which: bah! If we're going to get rain during our nascent springtime, we'd prefer a few dramatic thunderstorms to make it worth our while.
