No Place Like LA is our series that asks transplants and immigrants to LA, "When was the moment you felt that Los Angeles was truly home?"

I was driving on highway one day and it started to rain.

My first thought was, "Oh good, rain!"

And my second thought was, "Uh, I...don't know how to turn on my windshield wipers..."

I knew there was no going back.

I knew I was an Angeleno.
