You Know Roofing Shingles?

Yeah. I don’t really have those anymore.

Roofing Shingles

As you can see, they have been relocated to my front door by the Santa Ana winds.

A couple of nights ago, we had a real doozy of a wind storm. My apartment was actually SHAKING with each gust of wind, and every so often, there would be a lovely crashing sound that would jolt me out of my almost-sleep. Plus: have you ever seen a transformer blow up? It’s really cool.

The next morning, after a night of listening to the police scanner and fretting about Uncle Jeff the lemon tree while I waited for the roof to come clean off the bedroom, I emerged from the apartment to this:

And check out the sidewalk outside!
