"Rain Advisory" for LA county beaches. During a rain advisory, it is highly recommended that beach users avoid contact with ocean water! This lasts for 3 days after rainfall ends due to elevated levels of bacteria in the ocean because of storm water runoff. (yuck) So as I saw all the surfers in the water, I thought about how lucky we are here... and how important beach water quality monitoring is....
Ok... and in the middle of enjoying the calm after the storm... I cleaned up what little litter there was at the beach :)
