Generally warmer and wetter here.
A lot of rain doesn't necessarily mean an end to the drought. If it's too warm to stay in the mountains in the form of snowpack it doesn't help nearly as much.

Especially if we've had fires that have burned off all the vegetation; really hoping for a nice big el nino, it's so dry down here the chaparral is dying.

Hate that I had to go to the dentist to get a filling.

Love that the dentist wanted me to leave my card because she needs work done at her practice and home.

God, ain't that the truth. Most dentists that I've ran across, if you shake their hand you might want to count your fingers.

Filling was free, no copay, no nothing.

Your dentist gave you Novocaine (probably), drilled your tooth, put a filling in and told you no charge...have a nice day?

It's called insurance. Get some, it's nice.

She gave me two shots for some reason. Maybe I looked like a wimp or something. I was out of there at 1:45 this afternoon. The major effects of the Novocaine wore off about 6:30 with an itching that couldn't be scratched because it was numb. It's 10:20p right now and I can still feel some residual effects of the Novocaine.

I think she really over did it. But I gotta tell you, I did not feel a thing while she drilled.

When I was a child I didn't get Novocaine. I left my handprints in his chair every time.
