The Pineapple Express has come and is now on it's way out. As expected it took our power down at the house. The picture above is our clubhouse that is powered by generator so we have someplace to go to use the kitchen or keep warm. This storm took out the wifi in the clubhouse (now back on) and our phones at the house are out. Cellphones seem to be working. I woke up between 3 and 4AM and I don't think I've ever heard or been in such a windstorm. So far I've heard that there were gusts that reached 67mph. No word when our power will be up.
I heard one television weatherman last night say that a warm Pacific Ocean was amplifying the effects of the Pineapple Express. Maybe hurricanes will start hitting the West Coast in the future.
