It's snowing in L.A.

Well, not really. It's raining, and apparently rain in L.A. is like snow in Atlanta. Everybody freaks.

The news last night had reporters standing out in the rain like it was a hurricane, kicking at the four inches of water running down the gutter (they call this "street flooding"). They showed storefronts with sand bags in their doorways, although the water wasn't even over the curb.

Now, there are some big potential problems with six inches of rain falling in L.A. Mudslides are a real possibility in areas that were scorched with wildfires last summer, and just like Atlanta doesn't have a lot of snow plows, L.A. doesn't have the most robust storm-sewer system in the world.

But, people, come on.
