craziness in LA last night brought down trees everywhere

tree on Los Feliz Blvd.

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.
