Summer storm fun

Today's usual afternoon thundershowers over the San Gabriels and the high desert smushed down into the basin this time, drenching places like Altadena and Studio City in some pretty heavy rain. Then it lifted and many rainbows were had, including one over Dodger Stadium. Fun diversion for many, judging by social media, unless you were caught in the places where summer cloudbursts turn into flash floods. Above, a shot of State Route 60 in Moreno Valley in the Inland Empire.
