LOS ANGELES—For the first time in years, Los Angeles skies wept hard. After a long drought, the tears came in a steady rain that mounted from a drizzle to a shower to a deluge. Rivers of rainwater gushed down the streets, and pools of grimy water splashed in parking lots. Ever unprepared for weather that falls below a balmy 70 degrees, Angelenos got angry and disoriented. Traffic clogged, cars honked, and middle fingers waved as commuters hastened home for warm food and dry socks.
