The much needed rain for bitch-thirsty California is a good thing, but it has its consequences. Shortly before 5 p.m., the California Highway Patrol was reporting 57 incidents in LA County, which is higher than usual for even Friday at rush hour. A lot of the crashes are injury collisions with "rain as a contributing factor," one officer told us.

Also, reported snow is causing some delays on the 14, 5 and in the San Bernardino mountains (the latter two currently require chains).

Stay safe and good luck out there!
