i drove through the intersection of santa monica and doheny around 6:45 on friday, and the left-turn lane was completely flooded. "downpour" sounds pretty on-point to me. for once, my fellow angelenos were driving slowly on uncongested roads, and with sufficient following distance between vehicles.

Here in Long Beach, it rained Friday night - typical rain, nothing to write home about. No rain since. So much for accuweather.com

I was being sympathetic. I meant "boo hoo' as in "I'd hate to have ruined a pair of boots".

I absolutely love the rain. I grew up in a place where it rained frequently. This is going to sound very granola-crunchy (or perhaps psychotic), but when it rains, I feel like all of nature is being "fed" and I know the brown hills are going to turn green(ish) for a little while, and it's just a good feeling.

We do need rain, after all. I was glad for the downpour and even for how long it lasted.

Many years back during a spring that followed a particularly wet winter, a cousin of mine from Washington State and I went for a drive in the Santa Paula - Ojai - Carpinteria back country for an outing. It's been many years, but I still remember her amazement looking at the colorful "wall to wall" flora and green, green hills. "I never knew California could be so beautiful," she said over and over.
