    For those of you in California, Wikipedia has a lengthy article explaining what “rain” is.

    For those curious as to why the forecast was wrong, here is a nice interview on NPR about the difficulties of modeling such things.Report

    We had rain in the Bay Area just yesterday. I hope this begins a trend. We know nothing of hurricanes and little of thunderstorms-but we have something known as the Pineapple Express. And then there’s this El Nino thing.Report

    Pshaw, we just had Hurricane Dolores blow by not two weeks ago. It sent storms all across the Southland. Got my car all dirty. Best of all, the heavy winds missed land completely so it was really just rain.

    But if you all out there on the Eastern Seaboard have some way of sending your excess rain our way, yes it’d be quite welcome here. In fact, what we’d really like, come wintertime, is some of that snow y’all are constantly complaining about. You can put as much of it as you want right up there in the Sierras and we’ll send you all some nice avocados in return.Report

    All of South Carolina is going to get walloped by the storm that’s steering Joq out to sea, over a foot in rain in some places. The coastal communities between Ocean City, MD and Jax, FL are seeing beach erosion and flooding.

    The hurricane staying offshore (cept Bahamas and Bermuda) is still going to lead to a ruined weekend for many.Report

    One of the three major models always had it going out to sea (not the Euro Model, ha ha! Cheese eaters!), so no one should be tooooooooo disappointed here. I’m sure there are times when the models are all roughly aligned and they still get confounded.Report
