Sometimes it rains in Los Angeles

And when it does, everything goes to shit.

The drains aren’t equipped to handle it. The roads disintegrate. The hills begin to slide. And like clockwork, some yahoo will jump in the LA River and his rescue will be on the news.

In case you’re wondering, “What? LA has a river??”, it’s that concrete thing the Arnold Schwarzenegger rides his motorcycle through in Terminator 2.

  1. I used to live 2-1/2 blocks from that intersection. When it rained, we went hungry, unable to go outside to the KFC just to the right of the Firestone’s or to work to pay for it. Sad times. Fortunately only a couple months of the year. And on the bright side, we were able to slim down quite a bit for swimsuit season, which is the other ten months of the year.
