Sure, the above could easily be mistaken as a description of me. But what it really is is a phrase from a West Coast surf forecast that a colleague, Steve Enders, pointed out earlier today. In discussing the big seas whipped up by today's storm, www.stormsurf.com observed:
"...It is likely that some degree of very high seas will move close to the coast. In that event a large, unruly, ungroomed and raw swell will impact the North and Central California coasts. ..."
Meantime, a thunderstorm is sweeping the well-groomed streets of Berkeley right now. Sounds like it's hailing, too (a strictly wintertime happening here).
