Hooray! Los Angeles, while having a lot to offer in terms of culture (especially FOOD!), does not get nearly enough rain. Witness the drying of the Colorado River into the faucets of the city, or look at a map of California and note all of the dried up lakes North of the metropolis. In addition to basic water needs, rain has two major aesthetic benefits: (i) it cleans the air and (ii) it cleans the sidewalks. Those of you that live in ritzier parts of the city may not appreciate (ii), but in my neighbourhood the sidewalks are, to put it mildly, disgusting. But they are currently being washed clean!
I guess today I won’t need to listen to http://www.rainymood.com, since it’s coming in live.
