check out the coverage on the conan o’brien show of the general panic southern californians fall to when it rains. there have been a ton of accidents and ‘breaking weather reports’ for a ‘rainstorm’ any sane person would classify as a drizzle, if that. i think it actually rained once, and it wasn’t even that hard or that impressive. not nearly enough to cause the biblical flash floods in the burn zones that tv stations kept threatening would occur, which is the only reason i can think of for the amount of chaos precipitation causes around here.
