Seeking Sheltered Parking During Rainstorm

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?

Got a short ride to Salem. Still no room for standing or pulling over really on the I-5 pn ramp. Gonna try from the road that leads to the on ramp, across the Costco. Hoping to make it to Grant’s Pass or Ashland by tonight.
