It's raining LA Era. About time we got to have one of these threads.

Roll call time. Coming down nice here in Playa Vista, how's the rest of Los Angeles Era doing? (didn't see one of these threads yet)

Also, I like how #LARain is trending on Twitter. Gotta love it.

Hoping evening commute isn't filled with broken streetlights. Had a couple this morning. Mofos don't know about four/five/or the always deadly 6 way stop intersection when the lights go out.

I was down there yesterday. Went and bought a suit and ate street dogs and tacos along with some churros. It was a good day. Sorry it's raining today, LA ERA.

The first real rain we get for the season is always the worst on the roads. All the garbage, leaves, ect gets jammed into our already poor drainage system. So streets flood faster. Plus none of the oil has washed away from the streets, so it's extra slick after all these dry months.

Does that mean the fires are finally out? We visited Oxnard in mid-December and it was like flying into the mouth of Hell.
That was right when it started and at it's worst. As far as I'm aware, within the city they have been for some time now. Although there may have been pockets or places I am unaware of. As for the rest of the state, I'm unsure. I believe so though.

It's not raining here, it's fucking pouring.
All of Ventura County is basically under a giant mudslide warning due to the Thomas Fire obliterating everything in the mountains behind us.

Fuck no I was about to make this thread myself.
We just had our ass burned alive for the past month because the lack of rain through half 2017 dried things out so badly. Plus you can't live in Southern California without getting in on the meme.

Cold in SoCal = Awful
Rain in SoCal = Dangerous
Snow in SoCal = Apocalypse

Real talk though, there's severe mudslide warnings along a lot of southern california atm due to the fires we just had. A friend is getting evac warnings right now since 7AM. Stay safe yall.

I love the rain, and I'm glad it's finally here, it's late and we needed it so we don't just go back to drought status again that fast.

That said, I hope drivers and people living in mudslide prone areas remain safe.

I was wondering why this was a big deal and then I was like ... oh right ... lots of reasons. Stay safe.

I’m actually lucky, I’m relatively safe in this oart of LA. We did get flood warnings, but my dog hating the rain is my biggest problem.

I work from home so I actually get to enjoy this.

I drove to Solvane and I was shocked at how much has burned, I was also shocked at how dry the whole area has become. I mean Santa Barbara turned into a desert. I remember back in the 80's it looked like a tropical jungle. So sad.

While rain is always welcome, I seriously hope the people at the burnt areas don't get it too bad with mudslides and what not.
Is really coming down here in Sherman Oaks.
