This series of storms has finally moved on to other parts of the country and the sun is out today. About time. Here are more videos from the storm.
On Tuesday, the street in front of our house turned into a river. Fortunately, this downburst didn’t last long.
On Friday, we got hail. Fortunately, nothing in our yard was damaged by this hailstorm.
A lot of streets were flooded. I shot this on Pacific Coast Highway at Bolsa Chica. This stretch of highway is often closed during storms because of flooding.
At Bolsa Chica State Beach on Friday, the sky was navy blue and the ocean was a muddy green. Awesome colors, powerful storm-fueled waves, spectacular clouds. I’ll close with this last shot of the beach yesterday evening at Bolsa Chica State Beach, about three to four miles from our house as the crow flies.

Awesome images! Hope this is the last of the stormy weather for you!
Hi Pamela. Last of the storms? Ha. It’s raining again today.
It looks very frightening indeed. But your last photo is stunning. Off topic, but: I love that birdbath!
Hi Barbara, thanks for the compliment on the storm photo. I’m publishing that one with my newspaper column this week on all the rain we’ve been getting.
