Who's peekin' out from under a stairway

Everyone knows it's Windy--and no one knows it more than the driver of a small car on the freeway today. Poor Jamie did not like driving to the Westside today as I picked up a friend and took her to the airport. I got off the 10 freeway at La Brea and drove up to Olympic to pick up my friend because I just couldn't hold her steady with the crosswind and the grooves in the road. I took surface streets to LAX. On the way back to work, I did take the 105, but I opened both windows to allow the wind to cut through and it was better.

This evening the wind picked up again and it sounded like it would blow the windows out. I came home to a very cold apartment, quite a change from the weekend weather. Sheesh, LA; make up your mind already.

Hahahahaha! "Who's reachin' out to capture a moment?"
I used to LOVE that song when I was in high school!
It came on the radio when Larry and I were in the car a few months ago. Larry was shocked, amazed and somewhat sickened that I sang along and knew ALL the words!
Thanks for the pop memory, Laurie-Ann. Have a very Merry Christmas!

I think it's great that y'all know the words - I love that song!! And also? BE CAREFUL. There was a car that was *overturned* on Pico last nite. I'm sure poor driving habits had a lot to do with it, but the wind certainly didn't help.
