As I noted in this Facebook clip, we are finally having a year-end "rainy season" in Southern California. Most of the rest of the USA doesn't understand or fully appreciate how much we welcome rain in LaLa Land. Given our former days in residence around places like Portland, Oregon, (early 70s), we have certainly seen a dearth of moisture for many of the 26 years we have lived in SoCal.
A 'moniker' for the 'social current see' about common interest developments, aka HOAs, or homeowner associations, also property owner associations (POAs). These communities, while private governments, function much like cities with more than 9 million residents in these localities in California. As such, ALTACITIES, "alternate cities," are larger than the combined populations of the four largest cities in the state, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco.
