11. Crazy wind, I can tell you.
I was on Melrose at La Cienega last night at about 7pm. Just as I got to the traffic light the power went out, the power lines were twanging around like guitar strings. A few seconds later there was huge flash (I thought "lightening? But there aren't any clouds!") a bang, and a shower of blue sparks from about fifty feet away and up above the sidewalk. A transformer had exploded. Scared the shit out of me. All night long it was like the house was being run over by a freight train. Strings of sirens every 15 minutes all night. This a.m., trees and parts of trees all over the streets. Desert dust in everything. I just cleaned house yesterday!
