doglover: A 20-year-old manA man at 20? I feel old.
Russ1642: Go someplace with frquent thunderstorms and they understand lightning. Where I am they happen daily during hot summer weather. We know to drop what you're doing and get inside.
lesliepop: The article says that 0.14 inches of rain fell in just one hour? As if this is a large amount--What? Do they not mean 1.4 inches? Or 14 inches?
BoatKrazi: Right next door to Venice Beach is Marina Del Rey, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've witnessed a Thunderstorm there over a decade. It just doesn't happen that often.
LincolnLogolas: Venice Beach? One can hope it struck the daily drum fark/jam on the sand.

NaughtyKitty: There was rain in San Diego and rain in LA. I live in OC (between SD and LA) and no rain for us. No T-storms either. I was quite bummed, as it would be nice to give my yard a good soaking.

ImpendingCynic: Russ1642: Go someplace with frquent thunderstorms and they understand lightning. Where I am they happen daily during hot summer weather. We know to drop what you're doing and get inside.Yes, but this is a place that rarely sees a drop of rain between May and October. You don't expect lightning at the beach on a sunny summer day. For that matter, lightning is fairly uncommon in California in general. I don't miss the humid summers of the mid-Atlantic, but I do miss the thunderstorms. I honestly can't remember the last time I saw lightning here.
