Thank you, Canada, for sending us this holiday gift of cold and snow and gale-force winds -- you really shouldn't have. We've got a foot of snow in Murietta, hundreds of people stuck in their cars in the mountains, closed roads, flipped big rigs, and at the coast, wind gusts clocking in at 70 mph.
Here, just before being blown over (no kidding) are a few pix from Zuma Beach. The little cottage is rocking, a loose tarp on a nearby hill sounds like a cannon, and every few minutes the electricity flickers off. A memorable close to 2014.
