I headed down to the beach this morning to grab a Friday Picture of the Week. After about 15 minutes on the beach, I received a visit from the lifeguard who warned me that as a result of the earthquake in Japan the entire coast was being shut down due to tsunami warnings. Ah ha – that explained the closed parking lot in El Porto and the police office standing guard blocking access to the pier! Immediately I thought, wait, Ryan is running on the beach right now – will he know?! Turns out the surge wasn’t scheduled to hit for another 45 minutes, so all was good.
Although we didn’t see any surge, I decided one weird wave was definitely “the one” and videoed it! After deciding that was “the wave”, I declared victory and we headed off start our work day.
* As for the title, you may only get that if you live in Southern California and have to watch “Storm Watch” on the doppler 7000 Plus in HD – thanks Channel 7!
