From Friday Morning - The Strom Was Fast Approaching

Laguna Beach: This wastaken at 9:45 AM Friday and the wind was intolerable. I couldn't face the wind, which was coming from the south, to take a picture. So everything I took that morning I was facing north. I've never had that problem before. The result is the photo shows Memorial Point taken from the Gazebo.

You would have thought, I did, that the Gazebo would give some protection. Just the opposite. It was funneling the wind so that it was even worse. Like to blow someone off the Gazebo.

By the time I had gotten to the Gazebo my backside was soaked. Now returning to the car, parked on Ocean Ave, the front got the worst of it. Once at the car I was soaked thru. The winds did most of the damage. I had stopped at the Lifeguard headquarters to ask if they knew how fast the winds where. They said 24 to 28 MPG.

I had been through tropical storms in North Carolina and Florida but when you're 22 or 23 who cares how windy and wet you get. Now I care.

Sunday morning and the storm has past. Good riddance I say.

PS: I wrote this Saturday night so I HOPE the storm has past.
