A shot of the LA River as it runs through the San Fernando Valley on11-30 at 4:14PM. Not a drought-buster, but it’ll help. Makes you wonder why public officials have never seen the light and built reservoirs to hold the millions of gallons of fresh water that run down the river and out into the ocean when it rains. It was a pet peeve for my former colleague Hal Fishman at KTLA. I tend to agree, there should be some way to salvage all that fresh water both in Los Angeles and in other parts of the state as well, because, as the song says, “It never rains in California, but girl don’t they warn ya, it pours, man it pours.” More rain in the forecast for Tuesday. That too, will run out into the ocean and be lost as the worst drought since the state started keeping records continues.
