i have my suspicions though.
some people believe in luck.
some believe in an invisible man in the sky.
some think things happen because they were meant to be.
destiny, they call it.
and because theres gaping holes in each of the theories,
most people mentally stitch each of the beliefs together
on the fly, to explain the unexplainable
but the truth is,
if baby wants to dance in, and dance out
and do her little thing,
baby gonna do what she wanna do.
hipsters rejoice, your classic pontiac is protected by palm fronds
a fallen tree in Pasadena’s Central Park provides a nice photo opp for these two
the fake wall next to the 4100 Club was blown down pretty easily
trees knocked out power, which meant no stop lights in some areas = car crashes
the wind also attacked the homes and trees of the 1% which blocked roads (quite elegantly)
in Los Feliz the palm fronds littered the roads near my favorite mushrooms
theres usually not a lot of “weather” in LA, but when there is its dramatic:
fires, floods, earthquakes, and last night 80 MPH winds in the mountains and passes.
my part of town (hollywood) had strong winds all night but thankfully most of our trees have died due to pollution and hungry hungry hippos
but you could hear things banging against the building and trying to knock down the crib
to no avail.
this morning i got up early to survey the damage around my hood and took pics for KPCC
the weirdest damage was when huge trees from the rich neighborhoods were uprooted
and crashed on the walls of their rich neighbors.
more pics here. and here.
