Who Writes This Stuff?

I guess, the easy, literal answer to that question is Emily Rasmussen of the Long Beach Press-Telegram. In reporting on today's generous amount of rain she writes "Mountains, deserts and valleys were the most likely to see some rain Friday afternoon and into Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service." I couldn't find where the NWS actually reported that, but I want to ask what part of the Inland Empire is NOT mountain, desert or valley? The only exception I can think of is the Salton Sea itself, unless she intends to include all of the great outdoors, excluding only those areas that are the interiors of structures.

She also writes "There could be up to a half-inch of rain in some of the heaviest areas, which could double in the mountains." I would rewrite that sentence to "There could up to an inch of rain in the heaviest areas, the mountains."
