Thursday update: More Rabe rain photos from the Arroyo-River confluence

With another downpour on the way, I stopped off at about 8 this morning at the LA River accessway off San Fernando Road to take a few more photos. The LA River doesn’t seem much higher than it was Monday. And the Arroyo has definitely diminished…

If you’re like the 99% of us for whom these storms are just an inconvenience, here’s a little perspective. Here’s where that homeless man is apparently living.

Finally, under the Avenue 19 bridge, a little advice to thespians … and a warning to slumming taggers that this is real gang territory. I’m pretty sure this wasn’t here Monday.
