Yes, people in Los Angeles own umbrellas. We never get to use them, what with the six-month gaps between rainfall. But in the last few weeks, all that has changed. It’s raining almost every day, and continuing today, and is going to next week.
It’s strangely nifty, and has changed things up. (So many chances to steal someone’s garbage can lid to keep your head dry in a downpour.) On the other hand, it can get ugly. The blur you see in the upper left is a demolished Volkswagen that was holding up the entire 405 Freeway yesterday. Also, walking Ricky in this endless monsoon is not fun. Enough.
