Doom and gloom abounds on this day of continued rain and pounding surf. You may have seen my Pacifica surf pictures in yesterday's blog. Just a few miles up the road from Rockaway Beach where my pictures were taken and closer to my house, two apartment buildings, which have been in jeapordy of taking a tumble into the sea, are now being evacuated because efforts to shore up the crumbling cliff, with the addition of boulders to combat the violent waves , have failed. Check out this video - Pacifica Cliff Crumbling - Residents Evacuating.
Our neighbors in southern California are faring badly as well. Many areas, especially those that suffered loss of trees and vegetation in last year's fires, are in danger of mudslides and are having to evacuate their homes. Mudslides Slam CA Hillsides
While most of the state was definitely in need of rain, Mother Nature does not seem to know when to stop ( I guess I need to be careful so as not to incur further wrath ). How about changing these deluges to some nice steady gentle sprinkles, Mama? Enough already!!
