It’s not what it used to be.
People who weren’t here then don’t remember the endless gray, rainy skies Angelenos endured through the winter of 1982/1983.
When the sun doesn’t shine for weeks on end. In LA. It feels like the end.
It happened in 2005; I remember.
Anyway, here’s what Venice looked like back in ’83.
