when it rains, it...

Last night it started raining in Los Angeles. In most cities, this fact might not be blog worthy but in LA its a rare occurrence, especially in September. Below are some things I've noticed that are a direct effect of rain in LA.

1. The number of traffic accidents triple. This causes massive slowing effectively reducing all freeways to parking lots.

2. All gutters overflow as most LA roofs are designed for a maximum water drainage of dew in the morning.

3. The geese at Echo Park are angrier than usual. One chased me completely off the walking path and nearly in the lake.

4. Water abounds, throughout the city sprinklers can be seen running.
