It Never Rains (in Southern California) Albert Hammond.

"Seems it never rains in southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California
But girl don't they warn ya
It pours, man it pours"

On the bright side, this has to help the drought situation.

Maybe this was the result of the Anonymous Poster looking for some advice about how to prevent water from coming up through his slab??

Ohhh low blow to AP#1, the creator of countless 'idiot posts.'

GA for that, AP#1 needs to be thrown down a well, headfirst; right onto the mangled corpse of that jerk, AP#2, who seems to get perverse joy in berating AP#1 for every little thing.

Things in California have been diverting to the left for so long, I don't think it's possible anymore that something can be diverted right.
