Default Re: The Weather

Weather in LA is really boring. Continuous sunshine is overrated. Though I lived there during the 97/98 El Nino and the rain then was fantastic.

I remember it popping man-hole covers off the road everywhere, water gushing 4 foot up in the air from the drains, and big barricades of washed up plastic dustbins forming in the streets. LA drivers are so bad they couldn't cope. The first storm weekend there were 6,000 car accidents, I think, in the Greater LA area. It was chaos.
