“The City of Los Angeles Fire Department and the Bureau of Street Services are helping residents prepare for floods and mudslides by providing sand bags at all fire stations. Up to 25 burlap bags, sand and plastic sheeting are available per household. Residents are invited to visit neighborhood fire stations for more information about storm related emergencies. In addition, large amounts of sand, plastic and burlap bags are available for delivery to designated local areas to assist in distributing these supplies.”
Translation: So everyone, go ahead and bring an umbrella to work tomorrow, it might sprinkle a little or something, and maybe don’t wear a shirt that will be ruined if it gets wet. Otherwise, nothing to worry about.
UPDATE: So right after I opened my stupid mouth the power went out for blocks around us and wasn’t restored until about 4am.
