I haven't posted anything visual since November 18(!), but tonight I came across some perfectly appropriate images. I understand Southern California has been a bit wet lately (thanks, Facebook friends!). I've always enjoyed Disneyland in the rain--especially marathons on Splash Mountain, when you're already wet and there's nobody else in line. However, I have never been at Disneyland when Main Street was navigable by boat. The winter of 1977-1978 was particularly rainy. Los Angeles saw 33.44 inches of rain, then the third rainiest season on record, and still the fourth rainiest since 2004-2005's 37.96 inches. Disneyland was apparently ill-equipped to deal with the rain, as we see on the cover of the March 16, 1978 Disneyland Line:
And a few more images from page 2:
The photos are undated, but based on newspaper research, it's likely they're from Saturday, March 4's storm. That weekend saw a major storm pass through the region, causing more problems in areas in Los Angeles County, with the week following having lighter rain fall.
