Lightning in LA? Heck yeah, and it got biblical. The beaches were immediately shut down. Palm trees caught on fire. It happened.
Every time it rains just a few inches in LA, out come the obligatory “Storm Watch!” tweets. So hacky, been done a million times. You’re better than that.
The beauty of rain here is that it makes people tentative to venture out, so you get the run of the place. I went to Eat.Drink.Americano, in downtown LA, and felt like a Jew on Christmas morning.
Last night, the Angels game was rained out. It was the first time it’s happened here since 1995, and to put that in perspective, the Yankees have had over 50 rainouts since then. The company producing Angels umbrellas is not exactly printing money.
Actually, it’s a one-bedroom. But living in an apartment is one of the many sacrifices I make while I happily pursue my dream. And I love the pursuit. I love the people, the challenges, the city of Los Angeles, and, most of all, the feeling that makes my heart quicken every time I get to do the thing that I love: acting.
