It rained yesterday. I was so frightened I just parked my truck right on 134 where it merges with 5 just waiting for it to pass. People were honking and yelling-- they were also very frightened.

Not to worry.  The LA riverbed will take all the nasty clean drinkable rainwater safely out to sea.

I mean it's not reverse osmosis and bottled, you expect me to drink that?

I was so sure this was a Phil Rhodes post before clicking through. You, sir, are an American who does irony. Welcome to the language of Shakespeare.

Quote didn't work....

 

Adrian, on the show, The Colony, they did just that.   They drank rainwater and water from the LA river.  No one died or got sick.

If ever there were proof of suspension of disbelief. . ..

 

 

Though in truth I am always curious why they don't damn the thing up to catch all that water-- use it as grey-water, perhaps for irrigation. Granted, the cost to build out a whole new water distro system just for that is substantial, but I don't see a good reason why to let it all drain away given the arid environment of LA. Maybe then I could even go fishing!

I'm staying in the valley, what can I say.

 

Perhaps we should all get together at some point. Weekend?

I might be heading down to LA this week to drop off some film at Fotokem. If anyone wants to get together for a drink, I'd be down.
