Seeking Sheltered Parking During Rainstorm (1 Viewer)

Hi! After a fender-bender, our car really shouldn't be out in a continuous downpour or thunderstorm until we can afford to replace makeshift body repairs w/the real thing. Any ideas on places to park (in parking garages or other shelter) in Orange County/SE LA County? Goal is to park for free or very cheap for 24-36 hours & stay w/car OR (preferably) leave it & take bus elsewhere. We may stay w/a friend--who has spare room but no carport. Paying up to a FEW $ is an option if necessary, but airports & similar pricey options are out. Any shopping areas, hospitals or the like w/covered or multi-decker parking where a car can stay for 24-36 hours & nobody will notice or care?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
