After a day and a half of light rain here in Long Beach and a night of 35 m.p.h. winds, we are all left with beautiful blue skies and a view from here to Catalina, Downtown Los Angeles, Mt. Baldy and Big Bear.
It's just one of those days you tell your friends in Seattle or Michigan about. And leave out that you're wearing shorts or flip-flops.
