A New Tradition?
 or water on the brain


Southern California is recovering from several days of torrential rain and high winds.   Streets flooded, trees toppled, mud slid down hills and some people went stir crazy.

Once the sun came out, and it was safe to hit the bars go out and about, some folks went bananas. Yes, they did. Instead of going to CVS to stock up on Wet 'n Wild eyeliner pencils, they did this.......

This Saturday in my old home town of Huntington Beach, was the first annual Snuggie Pub Crawl.





People wearing their Snuggies signed up and were given lanyards and placards to wear proclaiming their participation. 


Then, starting right smack dab at the foot of the Huntington Beach Pier, they made their way, going  from bar to bar celebrating this new happy hour tradition.  Some wore Snuggies with a theme...you know, like animal prints........




and Ninjas....






Some dressed alike as they chugged their brewski........





Ummmm, yeah.  This gal got all decked out in her pink Snuggie, coordinated with her jeweled accessories, only to end up babysitting Pooh.  

I guess the old saying "everyone looks good at closing time", might apply here.

Things just aren't the same in my old home town.

Does your home town have any whacky traditions?

We have canoe races yearly, tons of people dress up silly and decorate their canoes or make silly looking boats out of weird stuff (like porta potties)

Huntington Beach was one of my favorite roadtrips in the old days (23 years ago).I met some fun souls on that beach. I remember laying on the beach studying for a big test at my power plant and I looked up and there was an identical power plant to mine right there! Kinda freaked me out.
ANywhooo, those nutty Californians sure have fun in the wake of bad weather.

How funny Cassie! That power plant wa shut down several years ago becaues it wasn't green enough. In the 60's it was the only thing between our house and the ocean!

WOOP! Good job, lmnop!
