Los Angeles TV stations go on Sprinkle Watch

nws-rain-map22614.jpgTaking all of the night's news shows together on LA's 2, 4, 5, 7, 9 11, 34 and 52, I figure there were about 30 minutes of coverage for each tenth of an inch of rain to actually fall. Maybe tomorrow there will be a little more actual news. The National Weather Service says that Wednesday night's relatively soft storm should be followed Thursday night by a "powerful winter storm...with potential heavy rain...gusty winds...and strong thunderstorms."
