Santa Cruz Winter Storms are here!


The last few days Santa Cruz, CA and all of California has been hit by some pretty strong winter storms.  In general the weather in Santa Cruz is pretty mild year round.  Our summers never get too hot because of nature's air conditioning: the coastal fog.  Winters we do get rain but not a ton like further North in California or in Oregon and Washington States.  The weather in Santa Cruz is pretty ideal but when a winter storm hits many love to go down to the beach and watch the ocean.  It becomes a roiling mass of waves and white caps often crashing over seawalls and cliffs in dramatic fashion.

I went down to West Cliff Dr this morning to see how this winter storm was affecting the ocean.  I saw several fallen trees on the way and power lines down.  One tree fell right on a car and a home, luckily no one was injured.  I took a few more pics along the way:

Stay dry out there everyone!
