Heavy rain showers hit San Diego

SAN DIEGO – From the fiarways to the highways, San Diego’s first storm of the year pounded San Diego with heavy rain all day.

What started as a light drizzle in the morning soon turned into an  inconvenience for those attending the Farmers Insurance Open, at the Torrey Pines Golf club in Del Mar, Friday.   Thousands of fans braved the bad weather under a sea of umbrellas and make shift rain coats.

But the rain and wind couldn’t stop Tiger Woods from storming to the top of the leader board at day two of the open.

“We had it spitting most of the day, but now it’s really coming down and it’s getting tough out here,” said Woods.

But what may have proved tougher than navigating the golf course, was navigating San Diego’s slick roads.

“There was quite a magnitude of crashes today.” said Officer Ed Forsber, who is with the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP says the wet weather constributed to five big rig accidents, including a fatal one in the North County.cars-in-rain1

By four o’clock in the afternoon, the CHP says San Diego had already exceeded three times its normal number of accidents  on any given day.

“Drivers just need to slow it down and be patient,” said Officer Forsber.  “It may take you a little longer to get you to where you re going, but wherever you’re going, you’re going to get there safe and that’s all that matters.”

    With this Turbulence Training review I must stop working all the hype around the software and
    supply my own activities using the software. I had heard about
    your creator Craig Ballantyne just before simply by reading Mens Wellness publication
    i really had been certain that he had a few legality in order to their name.
    These days any person on the web can produce an eBook and mug folks into
    buying that and so i wanted to ensure that he knew his or her things.
    Turbulence Training work outs are certainly not any magic bullet for fat loss
    but it’s an excellent tool that may present you with much better results than standard body builder exercise routines.

    The essential training principles guiding this system will be high intensity interval training workouts, that has been clinically proven of burning seven instances as much fat because traditional constant point out cardio. But this kind of interval training workout certainly features a price since you’ll must work a
    whole lot more difficult to obtain the desired outcomes.
    While you might accomplish regular express cardio as well
    as become not hard as you view tv on an
    elliptical exerciser but when you are undertaking intense
    interval training workout you might be exercising tremendous hard.
    An advantage in order to doing this form of coaching is that
    you happen to be also going to be able to find a lot more
    done in a new quicker period of time. So as opposed to staying at the fitness center
    for a long time during a period, it is possible to rather have
    a extremely effective exercise in mere 20-30 min’s.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
