Drizzle on Datura

It may have only been drizzle and very isolated light showers, but after the 13 driest months on record in Los Angeles and 42 days without measurable rain — and counting — being able to run in the “rain” this afternoon felt incredible.

If all the comments on Facebook and Twitter about the relief of having a little drizzle are any indication, we must have a built-in sense of the need for rain, and crave it when we don’t get enough.
