This does bring back memories--I lived only a few blocks from
here when I was a grad student at Caltech!

Update: More meteorology: There is a counter-clockwise low-pressure system parked over California, and a clockwise high-pressure system over Arizona, Nevada, and the Great Basin. These two systems are funneling the winds into California. Here's an AccuWeather update. The winds are expected to continue into Friday. Pasadena seems to be the "epicenter" of the storms.
