Love the rain and boy, did we need it
No umbrella for me. I get a kick out of watching people scurrying around so they won't get a drop on them. Meetings are cancelled b/c of rain, co-workers call in sick to avoid driving in the rain (even if it's just a few exits, ever heard of backroads??!!) Too funny... I guess it's just a matter of what you are used to

I was fortunate enough to stay in the jammies with coffee in hand during the storms. I loved the lightning and thunder tho that didn't last. At one point I did don the rainboots and took a walk...lovely, but I agree with some, don't like to drive in it.

Default I don't particularly like being wet all the time, but it's better than the heat of September.

i know a lot of the LA natives love the rain because it isn't really the norm, clears the air, and the region's water supply really needed it, but personally i can't stand the nasty, gloomy, chilly conditions of the past few days. i can deal with it for a day or two, but the lack of sunshine really starts to get to me after that. it doesn't feel like LA without the blue, sunny skies.

despite being "only" in the high 50s, i really like today's weather - sunny, mild/slightly crisp temps, blue skies, and pleasant overall.

it's funny how differently people dress in LA when it's around this temperature. some people are bundled up like it's 20 degrees (heavy coat/scarf/wool hat), some (like me) are wearing a thin jacket, and i saw a handful wearing a t-shirt and flip-flops.
