Pasadena Wind Storm
Some of you have heard, or have gone through, the Pasadena Wind Storm Catastrophe 2011! I’m joking about the title, but it’s actually true. We went on a drive through Pasadena, to go grocery shopping, and we counted 10 trees down just on the way to the store. And I’m not talking about branches. I would say pretty much every single house lost tree branches. Our neighbor lost some brances and our walk to school is now blocked!
We got lucky. There were many people that had their homes crushed. We only lost some fence pieces.
I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow the wind got inside our house, and then, only in one room. Bizarre:
We are supposed to get hit again tonight, so we are getting prepped. I tried to buy a generator, but BIG SURPRISE, everybody is sold out. So we’ve got bottled water, and some saved up fortune cookies that say, “You will be safe!”
This has truly been quite the catastrophe. If you are interested in seeing the scope of the damage done by this one night of hellacious winds, check out the photo gallery here.
