Well, it rained in Los Angeles today. Not a ton, but a little. The National Weather Service measured .41 inches at LAX and .94 inches in Pasadena. As wet weather has become an increasingly rare phenomenon, social media users were there to weigh in on all the action. By this afternoon, the weather was a hot topic on Twitter.

At one point #LA Rain rose all the way to No. 2 on the prestigious trending list.

To celebrate this rare occurrence, here are 12 tweets that capture the mayhem of a rainy day in LA.

As can be expected, plenty of jokes were made at the expense of LA drivers:

Not everybody knows this, but there’s a magic ingredient in #LARain that makes you forget how to drive.

Could it be that a little precipitation is all it takes to bring LA residents together? Well, this is the time to find out. Rain is expected to fall off and on for the next few days, with the heaviest downpours arriving Monday morning.

Does this mean the drought is over?

Still need a lot more #LARain to emerge from drought. I’m a real Californian, I treasure every raindrop. #WaterIsLifehttps://t.co/BZLzEKaySe

Right again, Twitter. We’ve still got a long way to go. But it’s a start!
