|Isn't that cloud weird? It looked like a huge scissor to me.|
|Here's a broader view|
|And here's a close-up showing the "blades" of the scissor just off shore|
While the lighthouse at Angel's Gate, the entrance to the Los Angeles Harbor, may have received a little rain, we didn't. Clouds reappeared on Tuesday, flirting with us, but the romance never moved beyond that. Fog moved in late Tuesday afternoon, but it too pooled over the harbor, leaving the sky clear at our level, some 800 feet above sea level.
|The fog covered the harbor like a blanket, leaving just a few shipping cranes barely visible|
As night fell, the fog thickened and the lights of the harbor, our usual nighttime view, blinked out. In the end, we got one one-hundredth of an inch of rain according to our roof-top weather station. Our luck with rain has run out, I think. Although the local extended AccuWeather forecast shows two possible light rain events in May, the earlier predictions for April weren't realized so I'm not counting on it. That scissor-shaped cloud looked like a sign to me.
