It rained today, just at the point where everyone was trying to get home for the evening commute. Those of you who are not from Los Angeles will have to filter this information and adapt it to your own commutes. Rain here would be akin to perhaps Miami getting two feet of snow, Chicago being attacked by giant man-eating clams or New York losing the effects of gravity. Or getting Giuliani back as Mayor. It's not pretty. Streets flood, streets close and the general populace realise that those windshield-wiper things that should have been replaced during the Clinton Administration are sadly inadequate now. You get people who clearly don't get the idea that the modern automobile is not water-soluble and drives pell-mell at high speed to get home and the other extreme of people in fear of hydroplaning will drive at 3.5 MPH.
I'm just glad to be home, fenders undented, listening to the rain.
Tomorrows commute? Oy.
