A car is nearly submerged in water on a flooded street in Sausalito, Calif., Sunday, Jan. 9, 2005. More heavy rain spread across parts of California on Sunday and snow piled deeper in the mountains as the state sat under a storm system that already had snowbound motorists and caused flooding.
NEARLY SUBMERGED? It is in what looks like four, maybe five, INCHES of water.
Is it jealousy over the tsunami? All the media in California seems to have lost it's mind about some rain. I mean, hell, you can still see most of a normal traffic cone. Places that have real flooding have flood gauges that measure in feet.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
