Whoever says it never rains in Southern California should be dragged out of his bed at 6am, all warm and toasty like, and shoved into the middle of my street. There, he would see that, indeed, it does rain in Southern Calfornia and that, alas, Southern California is extremely ill-equipped to handle the rain.
Theres a common misconception in L.A.; that we suck as drivers. Well, how else can you drive when you've got angst ridden, pre-pubescent teen boyz driving slammed import cars on one side, and angst ridden, pre-menopause soccer momz driving raised SUV's on the other?
Anyway, I'm only complaining because I really, really, really want to ride. I really do. But I can't because riding in the rain, especially when L.A. freeways are so bad at draining water (locals will remember the 105 fiasco), is just plain not worth the risk.
Oh well, it looks like this weekend should be better weather.... and I hear Managing Editor Brent "Minime" Avis is wearing a funny hat. Is that news worthy? No? How's about Storm Watch 2001?
