Super Storm??? Oh no!
According to scientists, California is due for a Super storm which could bring 40 days and 40 nights of rain, massive flooding, and devastation of Hollywood proportions.
I read such reports yesterday with a slightly ironic grin. Now it’s a Super storm. Fine. Bring it.
When I was planning my big move to LA, many non LAers looked at me with worried expressions.
Oh I could never move there. Earthquakes.
Oh I could never move there. Mudslides.
Oh I could never move there. Riots.
Oh I could never move there. Shallow Hollywood types.
Oh I could never move there. It’s too sunny.
Nevertheless, I moved.
When I arrived in LA, I was told that I should be ready for the big one. The big one was a disaster that could happen at any time. All anyone knew was that it was going to happen at some point. For certain. Definitely.
I made sure I had water and an emergency blanket in my car and got on with it.
Yes, we live on the brink of disaster, but that’s part of the charm of the place along with excellent Mexican food and decent art house cinema.
Meanwhile, the Super storm has been debunked in some outlets as media hysteria. Oh Super storm, you’re time was so short.
