El Niño or Global Warming?

Easter weather in San Pedro is generally windy and the dust and sand kicks up into high gear; we are used to that. What we were not used to was the unusually higher gusts of wind upon awakening on Wednesday, March 19. On the doorstep of many beach homes was the incoming surf!
The strong winds, that we usually only experience when a hurricane is near, picked up the surf that battered the piers, crashed into sea walls loosened tied down boats and dumped tons of seaweed onto the beaches. Plus, streets were flooded and Boca del Rio Park seemed like the lost city of Atlantis - all under water! Unbelievable!!!
