SoCal has ideal weather 360 days a year, but those five days of rain can apparently be terrifying to El Lay residents.
And they’re airing out their #Rainpocalypse fear on Twitter!
acid-filled wet stuff started falling from the sky on Wednesday night, but dried up before the morning, which caused some people to think the storm had passed…
So that's it? #larain

That free car wash last night was pretty cool. Was that a viral marketing thing or something? #LARain

We are one escaped T-Rex awwy from some Jurassic Park level of rain. In other news, people from LA still suck at driving in the rain.

Does anyone know if the National Guard delivers breakfast? I’m assuming LA is in a state of emergency with all this rain.

that's right folks, in LA, a good day or two of rain is an emergency. That's not hyperbole. That's how we live out here.

Due to heavy rain, train doors at terminal stations may not open automatically. To open, press illuminated button next to doors. ^JRA

We get that rain is really serious and can be totally devastating, but c'mon Los Angeles! This person said it best:
Rain in LA forcing people to stay indoors? Let me dry your tears with my 10 inches of snow during Super Week.
