"Fans, photographers, and television cameramen have gathered in the rain
to watch movie stars as they walk into the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
for the 54th Academy Awards ceremony held on March 29, 1982"
Los Angeles is not a rainy city. When the rains come, we are paralyzed. We seldom get a dowpour, so our roads have lots of oil build-up. People are just NOT used to driving on our slick roads. Accidents happen, power goes out and chaos ensues. Due to our recent forest fires, mudslides are imminent.

"Rain maiden-- Miss Linda Cape, North Hollywood,
checks for more rain after slight sprinkle dampened top of her convertible.
Weather defied weather men's predictions and dumped scattered splatters of rain on Valley."
Rain is predicted for this weekend. The Golden Globes Awards Ceremony is being held on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. This will be a good weekend to stock up on snacks, sit on the couch, knit and watch TV!
