This past weekend it was raining cats and dogs here in Orange County. I lived in Seattle, WA for about eight year and I visit about every two months since my family still lives there. The rain doesn’t bother me in Seattle, but for some reason after few hours of rain in CA I get grumpy. I wonder why?
