Pasadena Wind Storm

I don't know how many of you know that we live in Pasadena, CA. Well, the other night we got hit with some crazy winds. Talk about insanity. Too see the video click here.

When the winds started we thought this was just another case of the Santa Ana winds, we get them every year, but nothing could've prepared us for what actually occurred.  By 10pm we new this was not an average wind storm, by 12am we were scared, by 2am we saying, are we in Kansas toto, and by 3am we were hoping this was not going to be a three little pigs situation, because we don't have brick houses and basements.  Needless to say, we got through it minus some power and cable outages, but in the morning when we went outside, we could'nt believe our eyes.

Here is some footage from our morning walk.

Power lines split 
A tree blocking the street
Another tree (hundreds went down)
and the  infamous gas station, just a few blocks from our house.

Needless to say, things are looking better today (it's actually a gorgeous clear day), but still many don't have power and we are still driving through obstacle courses to get around the trees we lost : (
