A dry, diverse fourth

30 06 2007

Two words I think of regarding the fourth of July in Southern California:
1) Dry. Today marks the end of the “weather year,” and it will go down as the driest year since they started keeping records in the 1880s. 3.21 inches of rain fell in downtown LA in the last 12 months. Dry = nervous, very nervous about fireworks.
2) Diverse. Last night Kristalyn and I saw a high school band performing at a local mall. Before they started, five people introduced the band in five different languages. I went to a youth basketball game this morning, and probably 10% of the players/fans were Caucasians.
