Brrr..

The good news is: cold weather is on the way. I’ve been noticing the marine layer and the fine mist on my car my rental car in the morning and of course, the chilly night air. This is perfect! I love cool weather. Who wants to be hot and sweaty? Especially if you’re training for a marathon.

Weather.com states we might have stormy weather by Thursday. Madness. They predict it’ll be unusually cold for this time of year. However, we’ve known this all along. Our winters are getting colder and southern California suddenly knows what it’s like to have seasons and what the meaning of seasons are – usually our weather is pretty mild year round. People surf in the winter. That’s how crazy it is down here.

I hope it doesn’t rain on training day but it looks like it might. :(

…STRONG SEPTEMBER STORM POSSIBLE LATE THURSDAY THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY…

A STRONG STORM FOR SEPTEMBER MAY MOVE THROUGH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LATE THURSDAY THROUGH EARLY SATURDAY. THIS STORM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE WEATHER VERY RARELY SEEN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN SEPTEMBER. THIS COULD BE THE STRONGEST MID LATITUDE SEPTEMBER STORM FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN AROUND 20 YEARS. SEPTEMBER STORMS WITH SOME SIMILARITY TO THIS STORM OCCURRED IN 1986 AND IN 1963.

STRONG WINDS WILL DEVELOP IN ADVANCE OF THIS STORM IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY. THIS STORM SHOULD BRING MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES FOR THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH COOLEST TEMPERATURES FRIDAY. DEPENDING UPON THE EVENTUAL TRACK AND TIMING OF THIS STORM… THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY PRECIPITATION AT TIMES FROM LATE THURSDAY THROUGH LATE FRIDAY. THIS STORM WILL BE QUITE COLD FOR SEPTEMBER WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF THUNDERSTORMS.

Ooooh..exciting! Looks like we haven’t had a storm like this in over 20 years so this should be interesting. In other news, my head hurts and my eyes are killing me. I’m tired but I need to go to midweek training. This marathon has been an eye-opener and a cure-all. My back and neck actually feel BETTER and I’ve never known such flexibility. I feel like the “Rookie of the Year” (gotta see the movie to know what I’m talking about). It’s like I can suddenly do things I haven’t been able to do and I feel better – must be all the adrenaline and every single article you read about exercising clearly states that it makes you feel better afterwards.

“Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy.” OMG!! Ok, enough. :)

    lol, this always happens. I come to California and the weather freaks out. May I remind you about the SNOW at Redlands?! Gah.It’s pretty calm here so far, but everyone at the office was going nuts because it ‘might’ rain! I don’t know. The Grapevine looked pretty ominous yesterday, so we shall see what transpires….And yes, it was a bit chilly today!
