“Here Come Those Santa Ana Winds Again…”

THEY HOWLED. They tossed us. Trees “bounced” when they hit the ground. Palm trees danced furiously in the swirl. Last night’s ruckus made a big racket — scrap metal and fences flying, roof tiles crashing.

The winds were predicted to be between 60 and 80 miles an hour, but apparently they were, at times, upward of 90 so reports L.A. Times.

SGV in a “state of emergency” . . . It’s a different sort of epicenter. . . .

These winds are different, they are cold instead of balmy like the Santa Anas we’re most accustomed to. The force, however, has been profound. A few of us roamed the neighborhood this morning looking at the downed power, debris. Some neighbors, already resourceful, began cutting through fallen branches to make fire wood.
