I will water the lawn to improve the chances for rain, my roof is fixed and my car is already washed.

Remember to get sandbags.

Unnecessary. The soil is dry and will have no trouble absorbing the water.

Anticipating this storm I did 2 things: I turned off auto sprinkler systems and cleaned out rain gutters filled with dirt and other debris. Bring it on Mother Nature.

I love this. Quintessentially Californian. Midwesterners and east-coasters salute your bravery! Thanks for the chuckle.
