A very sad sight indeed. The Chinese Elm in the middle of our apartment complex came down in the Santa Ana winds last night. This beautiful tree must have been at least 50ft tall. Gusts up to 97 mph, hit the city causing widespread devastation. A Jacaranda fell onto our roof and the Elm toppled, but luckily I don't think anyone was hurt. All around Pasadena, South Pas and San Marino trees were down and roads were blocked. People I spoke to who have lived here all their lives, said they have never seen anything like it. A reminder of the mighty power of mother nature. The Huntington was closed today...thus all the blog posts!
