And then it rained!...

We're not kidding.  Southern California got a good soaking of rain overnite from the early morning hours of Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2015 through and past the morning rush hour, with lots of water draining out to the ocean, swift water rescues along the L.A. River by firefighters with LAFD, flash floods inland, rain swollen freeways, etc. et al...

Check out the sand berm built up at the creek at PCH and Santa Monica Canyon this morning in the photo below, which is adjacent to Will Rogers Tower #18...

So much rain that the LACoFD-Lifeguard Operations put out their standard post rain runoff warning about ocean pollution (see photo below; Source: LACoFD - Lifeguard Operations.)
