I forgot to mention this yesterday but then I totally forgot even though I posted pictures. I'm doing another POD for January...someone started another challenge in the Pub.
THAT just about sums up my morning. We got press passes for the Rose Parade (gotta love being media) and it POURED. Apparently, it rained for the first time on parade day in about 50 years (it's usually on New Years, but since it was on Sunday this year it was today). And this just happened to be the year that I got to go. Anyways. I wasn't planning to go, we got the form, filled it out, and didn't hear from them for awhile so I just forgot about it....then Kate called me up last night and was like "soooo tomorrow." And so I went. We got there superlate (didn't feel like going at 7:30, yep) but happened to catch about half the parade. We were DRENCHED. Imagine if we were there for the whole thing, then again it wasn't raining as hard when the parade kicked off.
Color is off but I had it on manual from yesterday and forgot to fix it. I didn't WANT to either, I was trying to keep my camera as dry as possible and this was a quickie.
Here are a couple of floats. My creziness told me I had to take pictures since it's not everyday I get to go to the Rose Parade - (click to enlarge)
Obviously, it's been pouring here. On the way home, some of the streets were half-flooded. It was crazy. I wasn't driving but GEEZ. There was this SUV next to us going pretty fast and he just about sent up a wave that just COVERED our car. WHOA. I tried to get a picture of the crazy amount of water, but that is all I got. hah.
