Friday, September 21, 2007 Storm Coming

There had been no rain in Los Angeles in the past 153 days, but on Friday, September 21, a storm moving down the coast teased everyone, out over the Pacific.  It just sat out to sea. This was the scene at Ocean Park, the beach south of the Santa Monica pier.
