The rain was welcome; the tornados - definitely not.

Homes were damaged in Pasco County, in Tampa near some golf club thing, and in Lake City.   Several injuries, fortunately no fatalities.

1/2 inch predicted for San Diego on Wednesday. We need it as well. It is bone dry here. Nice and warm though.
