That's six guys who will soon be attending "Advanced Anchoring Techniques".

One reason I won't put my boat in the harbor at Avila is the south swell, it is pretty serious when it comes in. Another boat swamped on the hook.

These weren't the first such warnings that I remember. I've heard reports of tornadoes in Huntington Beach in the past... at a mobile home park - go figure! I also remember the tornado that hit the Los Angeles Convention Center around the same time. I think it was about 20 years ago.

I've got plenty at my place at the moment. Here's a picture I took from my deck yesterday:



You can see how much the phone and TV cables are sagging, not to mention the trees. In total we had about a foot of new snow yesterday, and we're getting a bit more today. It started fairly light this morning, but in the past two hours we've received at least four more inches, and it's snowing harder now.

Your elevation?

Seems to me spring skiing on Telescope Peak will be great.

I have always wanted to ski the north face of San Jacinto, south of Beaumont pass, but to avoid a lot of brush thrashing, the route needs snow down low.

I'm at about a mile above sea level (5280 ft. plus or minus 20 ft.)

Thanks,

Beaumont pass sits about 2600, I could use a snow line of 3,000 feet, does the snow extend down that far?

Wish more people would post pics, or start a new thread containing pictures of this storm and it's damage.

I have gotten out, and wandered around, and took a few photos. Here we go; The first is Avila Beach with a thunderstorm in the distance.
The second is a sailboat washed up on the beach.
The third is normally dry creek crossing with horses in the background.
