I cancelled our photography group outing to Old Baldy when a heavy downpour came over an hour beforehand. But once the rain had passed I told the group I'd be there in case anyone showed up, and one person did. By then the rain had long gone, so we enjoyed a nice walk out to the cliff, and two more members of the group caught up to us a little later. The view was spectacular!
From a downpour an hour earlier, it turned into a memorable view of the valley, well worth the walk.
