UPDATE: It was mentioned to me that it might be a good time to go surfing (surf is estimated at 7 to 9 ft.). You'd be wrong to think that. You see, we have this huge problem in California called "public ownership" of sewer and drainage systems. Run-off (from any number of sources) feeds directly into the drains and is pumped a short distance off the Coast. Then the water gets contaminated. Then my little brother suffers from a rash after venturing out in the water after a storm.
