The Day After the Storm

Qualcomm Stadium where the Poinsettia Bowl is being played

If you've seen the national news you've seen the rain that we've had here in California; I describe it as like having a snow storm in a place where they never get snow---yes, it never rains in Southern California!  The drivers have no idea how to deal with it; and because it's such an infrequent occurrence (only 9 inches per year)  we look at it as an anomaly.  Dry creeks and rivers are swollen, parking lots flooded, and the people are actually driving around barriers into 4 feet of water--'tis the season.

Today I went to the beach, always a great place to see nature at work, and took a few snaps.  
Still pretty windy; the beach is "closed" but there are still lots of surfers in the water.

I'll be back later with a few thoughts on Christmas.
