Crazy weather recap

There are pictures on yahoo of the hail in LA. There were up to a foot in some areas, though i don't know if that was accumulation or drifts. Possibly a foot accumulation, cause from the pictures on yahoo and the news it looks like it might have drifted significantly higher than a foot in same areas. Several people reported that the hail was flowing down the streets like water although i'm not quite sure how that would work.

There was tons of lightning and a couple areas lost power. The rain totaled slightly over 5 inches in the heaviest hit areas, which of course flowed to low ground and got up to waist height in a lot of areas. A lot of cars stalled out, and in some places they were actually floating down the street. They had pictures on the news of one such street with cars scattered all across the street at all angles where they'd landed when the water went down.

And i missed all of it except for the lightning and some (relatively) light rain. No fake snow for me =/ No flooding either, although that wouldn't really have matterd anyways since i'm on the second floor.

I did have the foresight to park my car out in the open yesterday afternoon instead of in the covered garage area, so hopefully it should be clean now :)
