Stormy Ocean Beach

Since the strong winter rains began, I have become addicted to AccuWeather's online radar maps tracking storms in real time. Its reliability, however, is variable as we discovered Saturday afternoon on Ocean Beach after the website indicated there would be a break in the storms.
The rain stopped briefly but the wind was howling, creating northbound sand rivers across the strand.
It felt safest down by the shoreline...
...though the specter of a "rogue wave" carrying us out to sea was ever-present.
We almost reached the Cliff House before giving up and happily returning to the warm coziness of home.

I mourn the Dark Sky application, whose quality was also variable, but usually better than others. Apple ate it and downgraded it.
