At about 12:30 this afternoon, the skies opened up near Little River State Beach ( on the north end of Clam Beach) and it hailed so hard that most people on Highway 101 just stopped.
The downpour lasted almost 10 minutes. One vehicle heading south over the Little River bridge lost control and crossed north bound lanes and even passed those to end up on a frontage road across the freeway from the weigh station at Crannel exit. I saw the apparent driver, a woman standing by the little red car with a confused look on herself but she looked to be fine. Not sure about the car, although it looked pretty good considering.
As of about 3 pm this afternoon, Trinidad is a winter wonderland.
