Hatches were battened down. Shelter was sought, and when shelter was not sought, roads were driven on as poorly as a virtual blue Corvette steered by a hormone-mad 13-year-old playing Cruis’n USA outside theatre number 4. Speaking of which, a great many virtual blue Corvettes set sail just outside theatre number 4 this weekend. California got got by the storm of the winter. Panic ensued within the denizens and condescending laughter ensued from folks in the Northeast. But, most fantastically, storm surf ensued within the sea. So de-batten your hatches and revel in it. And drive safe, would you?
