Stormy weekend!!!Santa Cruz,Bay Area, Jan 4,07
Never knew that electricity goes here too. There was a weather forecast approximately 4 days before letting people know about the rainstorm weekend.
And, as predicted it was a very upsetting weather since yesterday. But, today, whole day has been even more stormy, windy and showering rain than other days. In addition to that, light went out. Right now, I'm writing these words in the dark evening amidst the dim glow of candle. I never thought that light would go ever, particularly in country's like the US. But, no super power can stand tall in front of mother Nature.
I've been listening to radio whole day and came to know that wind was so strong. It was recorded 80 mph. It was also reported flooding, tree fall downs in other parts of the bay area from the place where I lived. Lots of highways are closed. Traffic obstructed and so. News also said 220,000 houses are out of power and I know life would halt here without electricity. Right now, I'm thinking how to manage cooking and I'm not even sure when the Power would come. Everything is uncertain for the time being.
Somehow I managed to take a short clip of the day. Just wanted to share with my readers.
And, as I was listening to local Radio station in the evening covering disaster stories,i knew that it's one of the biggest storm of decades recorded ever since 1956.
PS: Finally, power came and am posting these words. Thanks lord!!!
