Stop the presses! It was raining in L.A.! In a recent KNBC news broadcast, a reporter was sent out to the gritty streets of L.A. to report on how bad our drizzle was this week—in the most dramatic way possible.

The reporter (bless her soul) had to dedicate nearly a minute of reporting to our pitiful showers, describing how it was "starting to feel a little bit like winter." The camera shot to a scene of barely wet Downtown asphalt as she described how rain worked in our town.

"It'll start raining for a few minutes and then stop and then start up again," she reported.

The best part of the segment was that they arrived Downtown and found that the patio seating was empty everywhere! She proceeded to interview Angelenos on how they felt about the rain.

"So, we ran out of the place and she was like, 'Oh I don't have my umbrella,' so we waited and she got back and got it," one man said about his experience.

The reporter later asked two girls how they kept dry, in which one replied, "You just cover your head and keep going."
