Dimness at Noon

In the spirit of the season, we are offering the rest of America this exclusive! one-time-only opportunity to mock Sandy Eggo weather. You’ll note that the street is empty because nobody in Southern California knows how to drive in the rain.


It’s not the weather needs mocking.

Dammit Nojo, seeing that photo, now I’m totally jonesing for a lobster burrito at El Zarape.

ADD: And are you ready for the Other Big One like in 1861?

And what a difference an election makes, will wonders never cease, the following phrase is on a federal guvmint website:

Storms of this magnitude are projected to become more frequent and intense as a result of climate change.

Where the hell is this place? Kinshasa?

@Dodgerblue: George the owner is a very nice dude. Not sure what he sells besides smokes, however.

Wait. I’m reading the sign over the ‘street’. You have ‘Universities’? Is this some Bob Jones phenomenon? The Crystal Macramé University of Universal Healing? The Harry Shearer School of Comedy?

@Benedick: There is neither a university nor a trolley within the vicinity of the Stinque Remote Office.

There is, however, a zoo about a mile in the other direction. By its pandas ye shall know it.

I always think of the Beat Farmers first and foremost when I hear of San Diego.

Apropos of the day

Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand, you know too soon
There is no sense in trying

Bob Dylan c. 1965

Back to lurking.

I used to live there. Couldn’t go surfing until 3 days after any rain because of all the toxic shit that gets washed into the sea. Damn shame, too. Windandsea was so much fun.

@SanFranLefty: “ARkStorm” sounds adorable! Then again, so does Pineapple Express.

And no, I’m not ready. I signed up for brushfires and earthquakes, and that’s it.
