What a way to start touring SoCal :/
I flew into LA on tuesday morning from -20 C sweden...
Set off at first light from LAX, bit chilly and fairly stiff headwind... but no big deal...
A very kind BF member had offered to give me place to stay for the first night in Long Beach and she picked me up when I was getting close...
That afternoon: Storms, tornados, floodings, water spouts, huge waves coming in from the ocean, landslide warnings! Hah!
She has let me stay at her place since then. No way I can ever repay this kindness and hospitality! >
Hopefully the worst of the storms will have passed by tomorrow (friday) morning so I can move on down towards San Clemente, San Diego then either into the desert regions (my original plan) or down to Mexico (plan B) and come back to SoCal when it gets a bit warmer.
Hoping there's none of you stuck out there in this weather. Be careful!
