Annual Hurricane Party

With hurricane season starting June 1, it is time to observe a CA tradition:  The annual Hurricane Party, designed to appease the hurricane deities into always showing us the picture on the right, and never the one on the left.  Snacks and beverages provided to include – of course – hurricanes. Be there, or get blown away!
