There was a bunch of hail out in the Mojave Desert this afternoon — those were some mighty pretty thunderheads over the San Gabriels visible from the basin. The LA Now blog story mentioned "heavy rain and dime-sized pieces of hail" in the Lancaster area. On the map, though, the nearby towns won't look familiar unless you have been to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Readers noticed the oops and let me know:
Are the maps shoveled onto LA Now by a robot like the automated earthquake stories are? I didn't know that. (And if so: why?) A human, presumably, has since changed to a map of California's Lancaster. Anyway, it would be kinda cool if the Susquehanna River ran through the desert.
