In Ocean Beach yesterday, it started raining before sunrise. The intensity of the downpour and the winds it blew in on seemed to increase as the day wore on.

At about 4pm, just after reaching its most torrential point, the deluge relented. Water flowed down from the hills and flooded the lower points of OB, and the wind seemed to begin blowing even harder. As the cloud cover over the ocean dissipated, sunlight managed to poke through, illuminating the tumultuous afternoon sky in gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, and pink.

According to the Union-Trib, "Lindbergh Field, San Diegos official weather station, recorded 1.56 inches of rain by 9 p.m. yesterday," washing away the previous record of 1.15 inches, which was set back in '92.

Yup, the OB Tree Committee did a great job in setting up this year's Christmas tree, because as the video shows, the wind tried as hard as it could but couldn't manage to blow the tree down Newport Avenue.

Hey shizzy-Do you go by the name tresles on signonsandiego? Someone recognized me the other day and I figured it was either you or SP619. I'm assuming tresles refers to THE Tresles surf spot.

Nope, tresles isn't me. And the surf spot is spelled Trestles.

I knew you were going to correct me on the I spelled it originally as Trestles but it didn't look right. Maybe it was SurfPup then.
