I have to say, this storm took me by surprise. I didn't believe all the hype, but it was definitely justified. We are still out of power, trees are down everywhere (including one that fell onto a house nearby), the traffic lights are all out, and there are lines of cars miles long for gas. My grandparent's area, Manhattan Beach, was hit especially hard and many of the homes were flooded. We are thankful that we are all ok and hoping to have the power (and heat!) back on soon.
