Something to Know - July 20th

Thanks to Tropical Storm Dolores, the weather over the past couple of days here in Southern California has been downright strange, but the LA Times tells us that this is a preview of what an El Nino year could look like (link to LA Times story). Over one-third of an inch fell in downtown LA, which broke a 120 year record. It has been hot and humid, but it's still kind of a novelty - it's not as though we are in Florida or Washington, where today's 94% humidity would have represented the 120th day of 80+ humidity ratings.

What stunned me were photographs of buckled highway infrastructure due to rain. A bridge on I-10 near the Arizona border buckled. One motorist did not brake in time and had to be rescued.
