There's truly nothing like winter storms in Northern California. Now I already hear one of my loyal readers moaning about a weather-related post, but bear with me for a minute. We had hurricane force winds last night, with gusts to 98 miles an hour just off shore, with torrential rains and downed trees. From my vantage point, the surf was so huge the surfers stayed home. Thankfully, no Coast Guard rescues seemed necessary off of Ocean Beach.
Overall, it was pretty powerful, but my lights stayed on. Though I had a few questionable hours during which I carried a flashlight in my pocket, but overall it wasn't that bad.
This morning the sun came out, and despite a few showers and some threatening looking clouds, it should be a beautiful day. I even saw a rainbow over the ocean. It was spectacular. I took photos of it, but I still can't post photos. Sigh. Take my word for it, it was great!
