California rain storm


California is in a serious drought. Last week we finally got some rain! I had to go outside and enjoy the rainfall. I took this group of photos on February 28th in the late afternoon. I was lucky a break in the rain created this beautiful rainbow over the fishing pier.

As the rain storm cleared I got some amazing photos of the big white clouds in the sky. This storm was not a drought-buster but it did help. Southern California is still at about half its normal rainfall for the season.

Off in the distance you could see it was still raining over the ocean. Anacapa island is not visible it’s raining so hard over the island.

I’m so happy that we got this rain storm. The pacific coast needs a lot more rain this season hopefully we get another storm like this soon.
