Thankfully we remembered each other's names.
On the Pasadena Star News website our travails were described thusly:
About 3,000 Southern California Edison customers in Arcadia, Monrovia, and South Pasadena lost electricity. Parts of Azusa, Temple City and Sierra Madre were also left in the dark due to outages but it's unknown how many residents were affected ... In Sierra Madre, Sgt. Charles Kamcharmnan said they had a transformer blow up, downed trees and power outages ... Gusts in Northern Los Angeles County hit 70 mph, the weather service said.
Additionally, large clouds of dust were reported being blown from the One Carter disaster.
So the upshot to all of this is I don't know what happened down at City Hall last night. Did the meeting even take place? Did hardier souls than I brave the elements and head on down to witness local governance in action? Did the passion and the fury contained within SCAG's 2012 Regional Transportation Plan Projections match what was going on outside?
This is an open thread. Share what you know, yo.
