We haven't had a rain storm this huge in Los Angeles since February, and that also means we haven't had the chance to get a good laugh at broadcast news reporters making a big fuss over water trickling from the sky in a while.

Jimmy Kimmel, who's no stranger to putting together montages of reporters acting overly dramatic about the weather (see this one from February) on his late night talk show, aired another gem last night.

In the video clip, he says, "It's raining in L.A. and the whole city smells like wet Ugg boots." True. If you've been complaining about the downpour, we have some breaking news for you: apparently, we really, really need this rain. And this video proves it.
