We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Water is descending from the sky to the ground in liquid form today, LAist has learned.

Eyewitnesses near LAist's Los Feliz bureau have confirmed this event, known to meteorologists as "rain." Experts fear that drivers will lose their composure and slow traffic, outdoor yoga classes will be canceled, and doggies that went to the grooming salon would have their little haircuts ruined.

Some dads have reportedly joked, "You can get a free car wash today, but the offer is only valid in precipitating locations!"

Weather scientists also predict that a bunch of your New York friends will have snide remarks about how "People in L.A. think two inches of rain is a big storm but it isn't!" They will be tweeting about it from the subway where they are sitting in abject misery caused by rats and puddles of melting ice.
