Bleak December Wind in Pasadena
Once every 10 years or so extraordinarily powerful wind events occur in California that are not associated with typical rainy winter weather. Starting on the night of Wednesday November 30, 2011 it happened again throughout the state and beyond. The city of Pasadena and environs experienced winds up to 90 mph.
